Hydrocerussite on Calcite With Baryte

ID: CC1009

An excellent crystal specimen of Hydrocerussite on Calcite with Baryte from the premier location for the species. The Hydrocerussite forms a group of white-green tabular crystals measuring to 0.7cm, with a typical luster for the location. The crystals are here and there lightly sprinkled with tiny acicular green Malachite crystals. The Hydrocerussites congregate towards one end of the specimen on a drusy translucent Calcite. White crystals of chisel habit Baryte to 0.5cm long are sparsely scattered over the Calcite. The matrix is a typical grey-black Mn-oxide. A fine small cabinet specimen of Hydrocerussite from a classic locality for the species.
