Cerussite on Mimetite

ID: CC1790

A specimen of colourless to tan Cerussite crystals to 15mm long, on a relatively thick matrix of botryoidal Mimetite. Makes for quite a dense piece! The specimen is richly invested with transparent to translucent Cerussite crystals, some showing twinning, hints of reticulation and striated prism faces. An impressive piece and only a couple of the many Cerussite crystals show contact marks and/or detachment points.
