This is an top notch, classic Broken Hill specimen, of garnet group on galena. Interestingly the only location in the world where garnet has been found on galena is the Broken Hill lode. This specimen is ex Len Hess collection, the late Len Hess, came from Adelaide, where he had two mineral shops, and he was renowned for this high quality Broken Hill specimens. I have to comment that the lines in the large crystal are no where near as noticeable in real life, actually they are hardly noticeable! RARE with this size display and great presentation, please compare our price, and remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
