RM2260   Twinned cerussite

Tsumeb mine (Tsumcorp), Tsumeb, Otjikoto, Namibia

Superb cerussite specimen from this worldwide classic locality. It shows a cyclic twin, with some more developed crystals, very brilliant, between translucent to transparent, with a very aesthetic pinkish red tone. It presents a second generation of prismatic type cerussite crystals that have grown locally on some faces. Very aerial and with a small matrix. It was acquired in 1975 from Bailey Minerals (Ángel Jesús Talabán García, Segovia 1942-Madrid 2007). A very aesthetic and good size piece.


Size: 6 x 5.6 x 3.8 cm.
Main crystal: 4 cm.
Found in ca. 1975.
