Wulfenite on Cerussite

ID: CC1511

Wulfenite crystals are clusterd on prismatic Cerussite, the light orange Wulfenite nicely contrasted against the translucent white Cerussite. The some of the lustrous Wulfenite crystals are part formed (where they grew against something else) and they have a typical tabular habit for the species. The Cerussite is essentially two prismatic crystals to 5cm tall, one showing two twin extensions off the main crystal. The slightly smoky crystals, with a red tint due to Hematite inclusions, have a silky lustre. A fine combo specimen of Wulfenite and Cerussite from the world renowned Tsumeb Mine.
