Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 4.0 x 2.4 cm
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Tsumeb Cerussites generally set the standard, and those with cyclic twinning are among the most coveted. This specimen, which is gemmy to translucent, exhibits the incredible adamantine luster found only in Cerussite and Diamonds. Some arms are gemmy through and through, and others have a beautiful, internal 'satin spar' appearance. Although broken on the bottom arm and slightly contacted along a few of the arms, three of the arms are virtually complete. The longest is 4.2 cm. A good small cabinet specimen, this is a fine representation of this habit with enormous visual appeal for the price.
