||Galena (elongated spinel twin chains) with Pyrite and Dolomite
Brushy Creek Mine, Greely, Viburnum Trend District, Reynolds County
Missouri, United States
7.3 x 3 CM (cabinet)
A Viburnum trend rarity, a stacked series of elongated spinel twin Galena form chain like structures. These reach over 6 CM in length and average 7 mm wide. Decorated with sparkling Pyrite and Dolomite they quite attractive. I do not know of any similar form found anyplace else, and I have not seen any available for some time. A must for a serious Galena collection!
