Chrome-Cerussite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
PbCO3
A variety of Cerussite

Variety of Cerussite. Not properly Diagnosed yet. Claimed to be a mixture of Cerussite and Crocoite in Hey's Chemical Index of Minerals.

Probably not due to chromium content, which is usually <100ppm. The Yellow color has been proposed to be produced by either organic compounds or by radiation, but the consistent association with crocoite is enigmatic.
