Item Description

A classic and striking, floater, V-twin cerussite crystal from Touissit. The pretty smoky, almost cognac colored crystal is translucent, super glassy and has fabulous adamantine luster. It looks like cut glass and the interior of the twin wings is eyecatching. A bit of bruising is noted and the base of the V is gently cleaved, but this is typical of most such specimens and this remains a beautiful, highly representative and exceptionally glassy example of this sought-after material. These came out in the 1970s to early 1980s, with none since. Ex Larry Krause collection. Valued $750
