Cerussite (Reticulated Crystal Habit)

ID: CC1558

A choice specimen of Cerussite in the classic reticulated crystal configuration, from the one and only Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The Cerussite displays the reticulated habit to best advantage viewed full on. If the specimen is observed from the sides the crystal formation has the appearance of a stratified stepped plateau mountain. A very lustrous Cerussite specimen with excellent very light smoky translucent colour. The matrix is a central core of creamy crystalline Dolomite about which the reticulated Cerussite has developed. A fine specimen from the Tsumeb.
