A complete floater, this twinned Cerussite is crystallized all around and is in pristine condition. Dusted with Micro crystals of Posnjakite and perhaps a few other species, which add a nice color contrast. The individual arms are complex, multi-faced, parallel growth crystals which are lustrous and in some areas transparent. Text book habit with the twinning well defined and esthetic.
