Galena Specimens from the UK (Lead Ore)
Cool little Galena specimens from the UK – typically from the Mendip Hills, but we do occasionally have stock from other locales.
Galena has been used as a lead ore for millenia – it was mined heavily by the Romans, and has been mined for most of the time since!
Our current stock includes:
- 30-40MM mixed specimens, typically from the Mendip Hills but sometimes from other locales.
- 55-65MM mixed specimens, typically from the Mendip Hills but sometimes from other locales.
- 40x30x25MM Cuboctahedral Galena specimen from Gravel Hill Mine, Cornwall.
