ID: CC20346
Hydrocerussite, a basic lead carbonate, forms a thin, yet continuous, surface coating over a splendid cluster of colourless, semi-transparent Cerussite crystals from Tsumeb.  Although not complete in its symmetry, the radiating Cerussite crystals form a stellate cyclic twin, often called a sixling, but in this case, with only two sets of complete twins.  The specimen is thick and chunky and the Cerussite crystals range between 2 and 2.5 cm in length, 1.6 cm wide and approximately 2.5 cm thick.  The snow-white Hydrocerussite forms a perfect, uninterrupted film with a subtle satin lustre.
