Many tiny clusters of this strange lead oxide mineral reside on the limonite matrix of this specimen. Each Plattnerite cluster is made up of even tinier needlelike crystals that radiate from their respective central points. The clusters have a gray-black color and a very shiny vitreous to adamantine luster. Their shine makes for an excellent contrast against the dull, brown-black backdrop of limonite.
