Galena (also known as lead glance) is the primary ore mineral of lead, and also a primary source of silver. It crystallizes in a cubic crystal system, and is also one of the most abundant sulfide minerals. Cerussite (also known as white lead) is another important ore mineral of lead and consists of lead carbonate, but Cerrusite crystallizes in the orthorhombic system. Barite is a white or colorless mineral consisting of barium sulfite, Barite can form into clusters of divergent blades creating a petal effect sometimes referred to as "Barite Rose" formations.
This specimen in particular has incredible Barite rosette formations around the sides in a pale, salmon-orange coloring, the matrix is Galena and the Cerussite is present throughout the piece. The incredible sparkle of the Galena is very eye-catching, there is now doubt that this would be a fine addition to any collection!
Galena is believed to be a deeply transformative stone, helping address deep fears that have long been buried. Cerussite is very compatible with Galena, as it is thought to help in spiritual transformation, and specifically a stone for use during meditation as it is very grounding. Barite and Galena both are considered to be harmonizing stones encouraging balance in the physical and spiritual planes.
