One of the classic "fragile" reticulated cerussites of extremely fine filigree, from the mid 1970s finds by mine geologist John Innes (so I am told). this is a very distinct form, and style. They are extremely rare on the market for obvious reasons, given the fragility and length of time passed since they were found. This is an excellent piece because it also has a more "normal" v-twin cerussite in association, measuring about 2 cm across. As with all such specimens form this pocket (or nearly all, I Should say), there is minor damage, trivial in context, to some of the more outlaying spokes. But the overall visual impact of this most reticulated style of cerussite is simply mesmerizing and there is little in the mineral world to match the elegance and cityscape complexity you see here. TOO FRAGILE TO MAIL.
