This specimen contains over a dozen nice cerussite crystals, many of which appear hexagonal due to cyclic twinning. There is also a fair amount of barite, in the form of books of thin translucent blades, pinkish-white in color (some stained a rusty orange). The cerussite crystals are transparent, nearly colorless, and have a vitreous luster. Many of the crystal faces are strongly striated, and at least one face shows a stepped, square growth pattern.
