Cerussite (Reticulated Crystal Habit)

ID: CC2355

A fine specimen of Cerussite from the Tsumeb Mine, a classic location for the reticulated crystal form. The Cerussite forms a multi-branching aggregate of twinned bladed crystals. The Cerussite is lightly covered in blue-green Rosasite and black Fe-Mn oxides, with bright lustre between. The specimen displays the twinned reticulations well, from either side.
