OKI-486    Galena with Sphalerite        Tri- State District, Ottawa Co., Oklahoma.  Ex Jim Turek Collection.  Iíve owned dozens of these specimens with this ďcityscapeĒ like stepped growth in various sizes but believe this one to be the finest Iíve owned and certainly the finest miniature Iíve ever seen.  The piece measures 6.4 x 5.7 x 4.2 cm.  The primary cube is 3 cm on edge and every face, all of which are exposed to some degree, have intricate facial modifications by octahedral overgrowths.  The limestone matrix plate has small sphalerite  crystals to 1.2 cm each on all sides and displays all the crystals up high off of it.  The specimen is a floater with no points of attachment and zero damage.  This is the type of specimen we could see on the cover of Min.
