Chrome Cerussite (R. W. Glenn Coll.)
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 5.5 x 2.5 cm
Kapi Mine, Dundas, Tasmania
Ex. Martin Zinn
Only the lead mines of Tasmania have ever produced chrome cerussite. The chrome is available because the mines produce the world's finest crocoite, a lead chromate. The color ranges from light yellow, like this specimen, to vivid lemon yellow. This particular matrix specimen is studded with lustrous cerussite crystals to.7 cm across. Most Rare in such size!
