This is a fine, gemmy, transparent cerussite crystal of unique form. It has a rich smoky color that is unusual in large cerussites. It is very dramatic, because of the strange geometric patterning atop the sharply tapered crystal. At the base, it widens and seems to be perched on or part of a reticulated twin. Ex. Willy Israel Collection.
