Galena on Sphalerite

Hi Joseph, I will not exclude other localities (e.g. Pfannenberger Einigkeit Mine), but this could indeed be a specimen from Becke-Oese.

Thanks Tobi,
I have it on file in my notes as Becke-Oese but I have misplaced the original label that came with the specimen. When I couldn't find any images that were similar from the locality, I wasn't sure that I wanted to attribute it to the location.

Thanks Tobi, I received that in a trade back in the 90's. It's in very good condition and the galena sits on sphalerite.

Joseph, nice pieces. Congratulations!!!

Regarding the last photo of Beryl with Albite, I think it comes from Shigar Valley.

Hi Manuel,
Thank you for the compliment on my collection pieces. As far as the beryl goes, I can only go with the information that was provided with the specimen, it was one that I purchased many years ago. If the consensus is that the locality is incorrect, I have no issue with changing it.

Cheers,
Joe

Always nice to see an aesthetic and well-crystallized sulphur specimen that is NOT from Sicily :-)
