- Reticulated (twinned) Cerussite
- Miniature, 4.1 x 3.6 x 1.2 cm
- Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Oshikoto Region, Namibia
- Ex. Shields and Frances Flynn
Reticulated Cerussite crystals from Tsumeb are always high on most collector's lists. The gemminess and adamantine luster are excellent, and the form (reticulated growth due to cyclic twinning) is simply superb. Often referred to as snowflake Cerussites, the aesthetics and quality of this miniature are outstanding. For a full miniature, with perfect form and symmetry and all other qualities you would wish, this stands out. Probably collected in the 1960s or early 1970s.
