Hmm. Still hard to see. Anyway to get the picture a bit larger? Also can you test the streak?

Picture is still blurry - though I am sure it's not easy taking a picture of a black shiny rock. Very possibly galena, but would need to see a better picture to ID. Can you test its streak?

what about the weight of this rock? This could help :)
plus a ruler next to it to see the size versus weight... is it actually shiny, as galena is usually much more shiny all around.

Still hard to tell from the visual's alone. WOuld need to do some tests like hardness, streak, etc.
