  • This is an interesting piece! The matrix is a mixture of mostly coarse galena, cerussite and malachite. It is a heavy piece! On the fronto of this specimen is a cerussite vug lined with twinned cerussite crystals to 9mm on edge. Importantly, there are a couple of clusters of beautiful deep-blue azurite blades on the cerussites. As well, there are some mounds and tufts of dark green malachite beside some of the azurite. Very nice piece that displays well.

A few small, white, cerussite crystals are scattered here and there. A wonderful study. Stands up perfectly for display!
