Twinned Cerussite crystal from Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
3.1 x 1.8 x 1.5 cm
A very nice Cerussite specimen in a solid, twinned form with nice luster and an attractive gemmy quality to it. It does have some damage, but given the other qualities of the piece, this is forgivable, even to me. Note the light smoky color as well! 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!
