Cerussite on Rhodochrosite

ID: CC1003

A very unusual combination of minerals for the Merehead Quarry, Somerset, England. The Cerussite forms a single crystal with a high glassy luster and measures to 1.4cm tall. The crystal is gemmy in areas; and displays prominently on the front of the specimen. The Cerussite has grown on crystals of light pink Rhodochrosite. A fine example of an uncommon species combination from Merehead Quarry.
