Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.3 x 3.0 x 2.5 cm
A jewel! Tsumeb Cerussites with cyclic twinning are highly coveted for their beauty and form. This piece, which is completely gemmy, has the great adamantine luster found only in Cerussite and Diamonds. The edge wear is minor. Overall, the Cerussite is in excellent condition. Not often will you find a Tsumeb Cerussite this good. A superb toenail specimen, this is a fine representation of the cyclic twinning habit, with enormous visual appeal for the price. MUCH better in person - gemmy crystals don't always photograph as well as you think they will. Outstanding aesthetics.
