ID: CC15712
Another unusual Tsumeb specimen in which a single, well developed, yet asymmetric Cerussite crystal, has been almost entirely coated in a very thin layer of creamy-white Dolomite with a matt, powdery appearance.  The Cerussite crystal has horizontal and parallel striations on one long prism face.  Under low magnification the Dolomite is seen to be deposited as both a thin film and as micro-globular clusters.
