NATIVE LEAD – SWEDEN

$48.00

 

For sale is a native lead from Sweden. Native lead is rare on earth, this is because lead has a great affinity to take up native sulphur, and because sulphur is an abundant mineral in the earths crust, there are very very few places where it is not available! Because the color of the lead is very similar to the color of the garnet epidote skarn it is found in, it is quite difficult to photograph.
