Cerussite on Galena - classic locale, vintage specimen
Stribro (Mies), Tachov District, Pizen Region
Bohemia, Czech Republic
6.7 x 5.9 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $850


From one of the oldest Mine sites in Europe (close to 900 years plus) this is an exceptional vintage specimen. Well formed Cerussites with elongated pseudohexagonal habit are perched across a crystalized Galena face. The Cerussites are a sooty butterscotch yellow-orange color and are mostly in clusters yet are distinct and well separated. Largest reach 2.5 CM Old labels include one from Muralt (Vienna). In remarkable condition for this very delicate specie, there are only some minor bruises on the outer edges. The Galena has a complexly crystalized surface and the Cerussite is quite strongly Fluorescent.
