Cerussite Pseudo. Anglesite With Cerussite
Kintore Open Cut (1989), Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 5.6 x 4.3 cm
Ex. Scott Kleine
This unusual specimen is a CLASSIC of Broken Hill, rar ein any specimen resembling anything aesthetic. This is one of the sharpest and prettiest (for the size) I have seen. The anglesites have been replaced by a brown, earthy cerussite (probably with limonite inclusions) but retain their 3-dimensional chisel-shaped form. Secondary cerussite later grew upon the earlier layer which adds a bit of sparkle and color contrast
