Superbly perched at one end of a tan, etched, plate of sparkly smithsonite is a cyclic twin, measuring 4 cm in length, of etched, lustrous and slightly translucent, dark gray cerussite. Very cool perch on matrix! If you look more closely, you also see that the matrix is actually a plate of tetrahedrites, draped in the sparkling smithsonite!
