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" twins such as this stunning example. Even during the heyday of mining at Tsumeb, large undamaged cerussite 'snowflakes' such as this were never abundant, especially considering their relative fragility. This is an exceptional cerussite for Tsumeb, and ranks in the very top percent of what was ever produced at this famous locale. The complexity and aesthetics of the twinned crystals is outstanding, and the luster is quite good for the species. For the serious Tsumeb collector, a fine cabinet-sized cerussite 'snowflake' is a must-have, and examples of this caliber come on the market very infrequently. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
