ID: CC15721

A wonderful small cabinet sized specimen of creamy white Mimetite with a single very gemmy transparent Cerussite from Tsumeb mine. The creamy outer skin is due to either surface alteration or a later deposition of Mimetite.  The bright yellow internal core of Mimetite can still be observed on the prismatic faces and on the cleavages of some broken crystals.
