ID: CC15943
A most attractive small miniature formed from a single crystal of translucent, milky white Cerussite with minor Cerussite crystals branching from it base in a reticulated habit. Aesthetically scattered over the Cerussite‚Äôs prism faces are micro sprays of acicular, emerald green Malachite.  An unusual feature within the display face of the large Cerussite crystal is a tower of stacked phantom crystals appearing as nested chevrons ascending from the base to the asymmetric termination, a quite fascinating and lovely aspect of this specimen.  The Cerussite is mounted on a labelled, small, clear acrylic base and previously belonged to a well-known and highly respected private collector of Tsumeb thumbnails and miniatures.
