Ingurtosa, Sardinia, Italy
SOLD

A most unusual old locality specimen of cerussite from the famous old mines of Sardinia. Thanks to Dr. Werner Paar for helping to decipher this label!: It reads "Ingurtosa," which is an old lead mine on Sardinia (not yet listed in Mindat -ed.). I found this location in the famous book of HINTZE ("Handbook of Mineralogy"), 1st volume/3rd division/1st part (p.3077) under worldwide occurrences for Cerussite
