Item Description

A striking sharp, 3.4 cm tapered spearpoint cerussite crystal dominates this showy and classic cyclically-twinned matrix cerussite specimen from famed Tsumeb. Strikingly well-striated, the typical bright adamantine lustre gemmy, translucent to transparent crystals are nicely accented by smoky tips above colorless bodies. The impressive primary crystal is nearly pristine, with only a trivial temination bruise (out-of-sight in most views). Out board crystals in the twin are contacted, one crystal is pristine with the other having only trivial bruising. A classic and aesthetic 360-degree cyclically-twinned cerussite from Tsumeb. Valued at $750.
