This little Moroccan Cerussite specimen has an extraordinary trait to it. The cluster is composed of several creamy-white tabular crystals, ranging in size from 3/4 inch to 2-1/4 inch in length, on a Galena base. One of the crystals is damaged; the point is broken off, revealing a little secret. The crystals' off-white color is due to a coating that surrounds a clear and colorless center. I'm guessing that the crystals are pure Cerussite, and the layering was caused by a change in the growing conditions. I've not seen a Cerussite specimen such as this one before.
