ID: CC21963
A small miniature group of translucent, milky cream Cerussite crystals from Leadhills in South Lanarkshire, Scotland.  Individual crystals measure up to about 6 mm long, have both horizontal and longitudinal striations and a glassy to slightly waxy lustre.  The crystals form a small dome with a cleaved flat base and when viewed from certain angles are seen to be partly reticulated.  A 2.5 x 1 cm patch of blackened Cerussite contains finely disseminated inclusions of Galena.  An interesting miniature Cerussite from this iconic Scottish locality accompanied with an old Krantz of Bonn label (No. 948), one corner of which has been trimmed off.
