(2) Cerussite specimens from Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
2.4 x 2.1 x 1.3 cm
Two twinned Cerussite clusters; the left piece exhibiting the classic cyclical twinning that produced a nice snowflake shaped cluster, while the right piece is a fat, complex v-twinned crystal, unusual for the locale. Some damage here and there, but fully crystallized nonetheless. Quite aesthetic, as well as from the eternally popular and long defunct Tsumeb Mine! One of the richest ore bodies in the world, the Tsumeb Mine produced millions of tons of metallic ores as well as numerous varieties of minerals, in all sorts of combinations! Cerussite, especially in striking, twinned specimens such as these, are what collectors go for from the Tsumeb Mine!
