Item Description

Cerussite from Tsumeb is one of the most classic and recognizable species out there, and one of more difficult to obtain in fine specimens. This piece features GEM/GEMMY, slightly golden / smoky colored, sharp, lustrous, reticulated, cyclic twinned crystals of Cerussite aesthetically intergrown on very minor matrix. A very eye-catching miniature specimen, that displays wonderfully. Good quality for the material. No damage that I can see from the front / display side, but there is a bit of roughness around the periphery where it was removed from the pocket wall. Tsumeb specimens are rising in value by the minute it seems, and attractive miniatures like this are in demand on the market.
