Large cuboctahedral crystals of Galena (the largest is 5.0 cm across), with small crystals of colorless Calcite (overall 8.5 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm). From a collection built in the 70s.
Supposedly from Casapalca Mine, Casapalca, Huarochiri Province, Lima Department, Peru (for related material, see: http://www.mindat.org/photo-751713.html).
Unless it is from Dalnegorsk?? Feedback welcome!

Bonjour Jean-François

I'm afraid that is almost impossible to be sure from where it could be, but is true that it looks a lot as from Casapalca. Let's wait for more opinions...
