Cerussite from the Tsumeb mine is generally regarded as the world's best, and the most desirable and iconic specimens are the beautiful reticulated "snowflake" style twins such as this excellent large example. Even during the heyday of mining at Tsumeb, large undamaged twinned cerussite crystals such as this were never abundant, especially considering their relative fragility. This is an exceptional cerussite for Tsumeb, the complexity and aesthetics of the twinned crystals is outstanding, with the luster also being quite good for the species. For the serious Tsumeb collector, a fine cabinet-sized cerussite is a must-have. Comes with a custom Sunnywood base for display. Classic!
