Cerussite with Caledonite and Linarite on Fluorite
stock #18.1-359
Grand Reef Mine - Graham County
Arizona, United States
7.1 x 4.6 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $275
Late Summer 2018

Twined Cerussites contrast with an unusual matrix of small dark purple Fluorites. The Cerussites have a few blue inclusions but are mostly whitish. The matrix has several small zones of Caledonite and Linarite. Grand Reef has produced some excellent Lead secondary minerals and is a modern classic locale. This piece looks nice by naked eye but with strong magnification the details are very impressive.
Cerussite with Pyromorphite -Classic
stock #18-AX-12-218
Leadhills, South Lanarkshire
Strathclyde, Scotland
7.1 x 4 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Late Summer 2018

Esthetic, vintage Cerussite with many of the crystals dusted by tiny Pyromorphite needles. The bright yellow Pyromorphites add an attractive color to the Cerussites From the classic Leadhills area, there are numerous unidentified micro crystals in several vugs as well. An older specimen, ex collections of Ernest Chapman, George Croad and others. In fine condition, the delicate Cerussites are nearly all intact and by naked eye, perfect.
Cerussite -fine silky luster.
stock #18-AX-18-051
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
Oriental Region, Morocco
5.7 x 4.3 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/large miniature)
price: $450
Worldwide mix summer

A remarkable and fine Cerussite from Touissit with at least 3 generations of crystals and no matrix. The largest are the silky type twins that are optically transparent from some angles and almost opaque from others as they have a "cats eye effect". These contrast with both a black druzy (heavily included by Galena) and small colorless Cerussites. Remarkably this is fully undamaged and pristine from all angles. Touissit is sadly long closed but did in its day produce some of the worlds best Lead secondary minerals and a few of these unique silky luster Cerussites,. This is a very choice example from any angle, and better in person.
Cerussite with Malachite, Deviline etc. Vintage
stock #18.1-156
Rezbanya, Baita Mining District, Nucet
Bihor, Romania
7 x 4.4 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $800
Worldwide mix summer

Glassy, clear and sharp prismatic crystals of Cerussite in a protected vug. This was collected back when Rezbanya was in Hungary, now called Baita, which is in Bihor, Romania. There are references to good Cerussite specimens in 19th century mineral texts but these are almost never seen even in old collections. Attractive and in fine condition, the Cerussites have a light cognac color and are transparent. From an old collection in the Czech Republic, this is a significant, vintage Roumanian specimen
Cerussite -Green and yellow crystals
stock #7-AE-415
Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, China
7.8 x 5.3 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Spring update

A cabinet sized specimen well crystalized on front and back with fine Cerussite. These crystals are green (likely caused by copper or Chrysocolla inclusions) and yellow (often called Chromian Cerussite). This is from a series of pockets found at the famed Daoping mine near Yangshao in 2004-5. Overall in fine condition, no damage seen by naked eye but a few micro dings can be seen with 10X magnification, and that only on outer edges. Since Cerussite is so delicate this peice is amazingly pristine. This sort of Cerussite has not been found for a few years, and now is being recognized as a significant find. There has been discussion (argument) as to weather or not to label these are Chromian Cerussites or Cuprian or nothing at all. It seems there have been differing results in analysis. As we await resolution we simply call this Cerussite.
Cerussite on Barite
stock #A-12-481
Mibladen Mine, Upper Moulouya lead district, Midelt, Khenifra Province
Meknes-Tafilalet Region, Morocco
4.9 x 3.4 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $135
Pre Holiday 2017

One of the best values in todays mineral market are the Cerussites on orange Barite from Mibladen. This is a especially fine example with no damage, transparent and complete Cerussite crystals and a nice composition. Compared with a similar Cerussite from any other locale, these are super inexpensive and a good value. This specimen is quite above average with no issues or detractions.
Cerussite- gem crystals on Conichalcite with Mimetite
stock #17.1-338
Tsumeb
Otavi-Bergland district, Oshikoto, Namibia
2.8 x 2.3 x 2.2 CM (thumbnail)
price: $750
Pre Holiday 2017

A killer thumbnail with several perfect gem clear Cerussites on a contrasting green Conichalcite. A few of the Cerussites have the yellow crust that is usually identified as Mimetite but a few similar pieces turned out to be Hedyphane, this one has not been tested. The arrangement and esthetic construction is first rate. By naked eye this is pristine and undamaged, but one small contact/chip is seen with good magnification. Since Cerussite is so fragile the condition is extraordinary. I would rate this as strong competition quality and certainly better in person.
