Unusually thick crystal of the classic reticulated "snowflake' Cerussite style. This is a cluster of intergrown, twinned, cerussite. The luster ranges from typically glassy along the terminations to unusually glassy and sparkling along the sides, which shimmer because of the fine degree of crystallization. A very nice specimen you can say elegantly demonstrates why these are still the most desirable cerussites in the world! Purchased from the Zweibels in 1978
