Dalnegorsk is another mineral collecting locality that I feel is important, in the terms of combination specimens and sheer amount of different species. I tried counting the each mineral type on, and my eyes kept crossing after 100. On this specific sample, you will find just three of those 100+ I mentioned. The three present are well represented, and play off each other beautifully. The milky-white quartz matrix creates a nice base, while still allowing your attention to focus on the singular blade of galena and vibrant pyrrhotite crystals.
