DC23 Galena, Quartz, Pyrite
Turt Mine, Oasului Mtns, near Satu Mare, Marmures Co., Romania 7.5x 5.0x 2.8 cm
6.3x 4.6x 2.8 cm

An interesting specimen of siderite psudomorphs after calcite, on a matrix shared by pyrite and quartz, and with galena on the reverse. When I first started collecting, Romanian minerals were as plentiful as the comparable Peruvian material today. This days, many of the Romanian mines are closed, and the material is not as common.
