Galena mineral specimens exhibiting a textbook blocky, cubic crystal habit and a metallic lustre. Galena is an important lead ore and as such it is very dense. Its attractive silvery colour makes it a popular mineral among amateurs, professionals and collectors. This material was collected from Mexico and stands proudly, mounted (attached with glue) on a polystyrene base within a 1.5" x 1.5" card tray, information label attached. These specimens would be suited for geologists, collectors or simply those interested in mineralogy looking for an attractive display piece.
