Hydrocerussite is the white alteration product of cerussite, and seems quite rare in nature. Here, the original cerussite crystal is altering, at least on the surface, to hydrocerussite. Usually they are chalky and dull, but this one is relatively aesthetic! The color is bright and the geometry is composed of various twins of cerussite, including a cyclic twin measuring 4.8 cm in length.
