Detailed Mineral List:

Calcite
Formula: CaCO3
Reference: Harjo Neutkens collection
Cerussite
Formula: PbCO3
Colour: white to translucent
Description: Small weathered galena specimen on schalenblende shows very small crystals as well as reticulated masses. Found only 1 specimen but probably more exist. The fact that nearly all the sepcimens where acid treatened to remove the calcite, it dissolved the cerussite too.
Reference: Paul De Bondt collection
