A very choice thumbnail from the Blanchard Claims. An altered cube of galena is encrusted with colorless to white blades of cerussite. A ring of electric blue linarite forms an attractive halo around the piece. The linarite crystals are gemmy in places and are in the form of long, thin crystals that for radial sprays. Individual linarite crystals measure up to 5mm long. Great contrast between the linarite and the cerussite. A core of unaltered galena is still visible on the back of the specimen. Quartz, fluorite and very minor malachite in association. There is a light rub to the 'nose' of the piece, evident in photo #1, but otherwise the specimen is damage free. No damage to the linarite.

Origin: Blanchard Claims, Bingham, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA

Overall Dimensions: 2.4 x 2 x 2 cm
Bar in photograph is one inch long with a rule at one centimeter.
