Ex. Rob Smith
An excellent Tsumeb combination specimen of a pristine, glassy, smoky, cyclically-twinned cerussite crystal cluster preferentially coated with lustrous, tan mimetite needles. The cerussite blades are substantial and thick. There is a bit of contacting, but this is a complete all-around old-timer from this very famous mine. Mimetite on cerussite in not that common and this is a good one. Ex Rob Smith Collection, a Tsumeb specialist.
