Galena is a primary mineral, & is the most common miner containing lead. It is often well crystallized with forms of cubic & octohedral shapes or a combination of the two. Galena specimens are usually found in sedimentary limestone deposits found sedimentary limestone desposits along hypothermal veins. These minerals are easily damaged, so they should be handled with care. Found in Bulgaria & the U.S.
I absolutely freaked out when I saw this specimen in one of our flats! I love that the wulfenite sits so lightly on top of the dense galena it is such a cool look differense between minerals!
