Let me state up front this specimen is tagged as broken and yes, I can see where. But please don’t be discouraged by this because it is a rare and fabulous example of crystallised Cerussite from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia. Ex. Dave Bunk Minerals and the William B. Sanborn Collection, colourless, gemmy Cerussite forms a five limbed stellate, 5 cm long crystal of most delicate appearance. It is actually much more robust than it appears, but obviously requires to be handled with great care. Small sections have been broken out from parts of these individual faces, but for such a rare and delicate habit this is something which has to be accepted to appreciate this miniature’s wonderful morphology and crystallography . It is a lovely thing.
