Cerussite with Posnjakite on Malachite


Out of stock

Piroska had this labeled as anglesite, but the sixling associated with it and the smaller sister crystals all indicate to me cerussite. Nevertheless, the posnjakite is the real feature here. It surrounds and is included in the main V twin crystal and is also included in all sister crystals. The main crystal is cleaved on one side of the V. Rare opportunity here. Ex Piroska Magyar
