ANGLESITE AFTER CERUSSITE

$300.00
$300.00

Old-time staple of the famous Broken Hill Mines: a grouping of cerussite crystals pseudomorphed to anglesite, likely mined in the very early 20th century. Many crystals still show a reticulated formation from the original cerussite growth. This replacement is seldom ever seen in nature, and  Specimen comes with a label from Hugh Ford, a New York-based mineral dealer active during the mid 1900's.
