AP10 Linarite on Galena with Fluorite
Blanchard Mine, Bingham, Socorro Co., New Mexico, United States
19.0x 7.8x 8.6 cm
$450

A large cabinet specimen, hosting a single 3.1 cm galena crystal whose surfaces have altered in places to blue linarite, and a powdery coating of what is most likely cerussite. There are some purplish-blue fluorites also scattered about the matrix.

There is some damage to a some of the surrounding fluorites, and a saw mark on the back, but the galena crystal is intact. This piece would be a good candidate for a trim, but I am leaving it as is.

This is an older piece, is has been in a box for at least the last two decades.
