- Cerussite (classic USA locale)
- Miniature, 4.0 x 3.6 x 2.7 cm
- Grand Reef Mine, Klondyke, Laurel Canyon, Graham Co., Arizona, USA
Although known for some of the best Linarite specimens ever found, the Grand Reef Mine also rarely produced some very nice Cerussite specimens like this one! It's a handsome, stout, snow-white, twinned Cerussite crystal measuring 4.0 cm in maximum dimension. One component of the V-twin is fat and juicy and the other portion of the twin is more slender with several smaller Cerussite crystals forming multiple twins on the surface, and a few are just growing on this portion of the crystal. This is a really choice Cerussite from finds probably originating in the mid-1990s but could be from earlier in the 20th Century. This Cerussite fluoresces yellow-orange under short-wave UV light. Ex. Michael Harkness lead species collection with label and Grant Gibson Minerals label. Hefty, and beautiful!
