This is a large, showy plate of highly-lustrous spinel-twinned and dodecahedral galena crystals associated with brassy pyrrhotite, needle quartz, and jet-black sphalerite crystals from older finds at the well-known Nikoleavskiy mine in Dalnegorsk District, Primorskiy Krai, Russia. A beautiful crystallized sulfide specimen from Dalnegorsk, with interesting galena crystals showing a variety of morphologies. In fine condition as seen. Annette Slade photo.
