Here is a really neat combo specimen from Russia. Several calcite crystals for a mouse-ear formation on top of hoppered galena. The calcit has a very slight pink tinge to it, so it may be a manganocalcite. The galena is actually much shinier than it looks in the photos - it looks like chrome! It has a darker, matte appearance due to the lighting used, but in person it's super-shiny. The hoppered growth looks cool far afar, but also in the closeups you can see very fine crystal growth patterns and layers.

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
