This cerussite is very delicate, attractive and unusual.

I drove through Tsumeb once and stopped by the post office. Not just stamps and envelopes - they had trays of azurites, cerussites and cuprites in there.

Don, I don't think I've ever seen a cerussite like the last one pictured - quite unusual.

Ru - how long ago did you drive through Tsumeb? I wish our post office had flats of azurites, cerussites, and cuprites. Haha.
