Lovely cerussite specimen

Measurements:  50 x 27 x 16 mm

Description:  This lovely cerussite specimen consist of either one large
cerussite crystal with very interesting V-shaped growth pattern, or a few crystals fused together, but we're not sure, because of its interesting crystal habit. The specimen has bits of ore in and on parts of it. The ore bits are dull, but as you tilt it in light, the tiny bits of cerussite facets in amongst the ore, reflects well. 

There are only a few small nicks to the specimen, and some damage to the bottom where it parted from its matrix.
