Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 4.7 x 2.7 cm
Daoping Mine (Tangping Mine), Gongcheng City, Gongcheng Co., Guilin Prefecture, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
Pretty creamy-yellow crystals of chrome cerussite richly and attractively cover the undulating, sturdy matrix on this fine specimen from the important find at the Daoping Mine a few years back. The crystals are quite lustrous and translucent, and measure to around 1.0 cm. Chrome cerussite is quite uncommon worldwide and this is a fine example from this famous locale.
