Sweetwater Mine, Ellington, Viburnum Trend District, Reynolds County, Missouri, USA
This grouping of galena from the famous and classic Sweetwater Mine in Missouri, USA shows nice crystal details and sharp edges in a really aesthetic grouping. The crystals are modified cubes which have surface growth details. Small groupings of golden chalcopyrite are a nice accent and color contrast. Difficult to photograph, this piece has a medium gunmetal gray color and luster which is very typical for the location. No longer in operation, pieces from this mine are rapidly becoming difficult to find.
