RM1425   Cerussite

Trevellance Mine, Bolingey, Perranzabuloe, St Agnes, Cornwall, United Kingdom

I purchased this specimen more than 10 years ago to the dissapeared dealer Baikal Geo (Madrid). It consists in a rich group of fibrous to prismatic aggregates of brilliant, transparent to white cerussite on a goethite matrix. This specimen is labeled from Trevellance mine, a very old Cornish mine worked for some time during the 1840s. Very interesting specimen from a rare English locality.

Size: 5.2 x 4.7 x 2.8 cm.
Main crystal: 8 x 2 mm.
