Daoping Lead-Zinc Mine, Yangshao
Guangxi Autonomous Region,
4.7 x 3.1 x 3 CM (miniature)
A sizable twinned crystal of Cerussite dominates a Cerussite matrix from this famed Pyromorphite locality. Silky luster with alternating faces that have a light frosting makes this quite distinctive. The largest prism is 2.8 CM long which is huge for this now classic locale
Ojuela Mine, Level 6, Municipio de Mapimi
6.2 x 5.2 x 5 CM (cabinet)
A fine and pretty matrix Legrandite with sharp canary yellow crystals protected in a vug. The condition as seen is excellent and undamaged despite the fragility of this rare mineral. While this could be trimmed to a fine thumbnail the larger matrix seems fine to me as is showing many other vugs and associations adding interest. Choice.
