Choice, well-formed lattice of classic, reticulated twin Cerussite from the famous Tsumeb Mine. The 'snowflake' appearance of this twinning is highly desired, and combined with the excellent gemminess and luster, make this a fine specimen. The delicate light brown color is also unusual, but I have seen it before in some outstanding Tsumeb Cerussites. Along the top are dozens of 2 mm, sharp Calcite rhombs. A very good representative example of the thick, complex, lustrous cerussites for which Tsumeb is famous - and better in person.
