Size: 5.1 x 3.5 x 3.2 cm.
A great, old classic. This is a dense, heavy (131 grams) specimen of lead which is composed entirely of hoppered growth crystals to 1.0 cm in length. Native lead with well-developed crystals like this is extremely rare and desired by collectors of such oddities. In fact, lead is one of the more difficult of the common & major ore metals to obtain in native crystals; and the best really do come from just a few old mines in Langban and Harstigen, in Sweden. Such pieces mostly date to the 1800s or early 1900s (and this label is mid-1900s). Add to this that the location of the old and famous Langban Mine in Sweden has some value as well, and then this specimen becomes a treasure.
