Cerussite twins are not an uncommon occurrence-- this specimen is no exception. As a matter of fact, there is evidence of multiple twinning of the crystals-- though incomplete, one can make out the form of a trilling, a twinning variation in which a crystal is twinned 3 times at 60- or 120-degree angles, so that there seem to be either 3 or 6 crystals radiating from a central point along one plane. There are a few "legs" of the trilling missing and quite a bit of damage otherwise, but the Cerussite is quite transparent, has clean faces where applicable, and a pale brown color. There is a black matrix material that has the subadamantine luster of a lead mineral like Cerussite, but I cannot identify it-- it may even be a small spot of plattnerite, who knows?
