Reticulated Cerussite Snoflake Crystals
Reticulated Cerussite Snoflake Crystals from Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description Superb example of the classic reticulated 'snowflake' habit of Cerussite. The luster in very good, and the thickness of the Cerussite gives this wonderful specimen a very stout feel to it. Cerussites with the flat and highly reticulated style are rare and highly sought-after. Beyond that, the pictures tell you all you need to know. This is a premium, aesthetic small cabinet that looks amazing on a shelf! It does, as do they all, have some wear around the edges on close inspection and when seen on edge, that does not show from the display face. A classic from the Tsumeb of a style found in the early 1980's, these are hard to come by today. Ex. Dr. Art Soregaroli.
