||Galena with Chalcopyrite, Sphalerite in epitaxial form
9th Septebri Mine (Deveti Septembvri) Madan Ore Field, Rhodope Mts.
Smolyan Oblast, Bulgaria
5 x 5 x 4.8 CCM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
Galena in oriented, stacked cubes and cubo-octahedral arrangements are decorated with bright Chalcopyrite. An excellent example of the epitaxial structures from this important find of 2008-9. No damage. We strongly feel these will be ranked with some of the great classics in future years, they are esthetic, unique and currently very affordable.
