__________
Additional information:

I changed the name of the topic from "Favourite Galena localities" to "Favourite Galenas". So everyone can feel free not only to discuss his/her favourite localities but also which colours and forms of that mineral he/she likes the most, e.g. simple or complex crystal forms, lustrous or not etc. ...
