The lustrous part formed Cerussite crystals measure to 1cm tall, with associated masses measuring to 1cm. The Cerussite is heavily included by dense hair-like fibrous crystals of red Cuprite. The Cerussite has grown on a micro-crystalline white Dolomite, with bright green crystal areas of Duftite. A fine specimen of the type from the mine.
