Tarnowitzite with Cerussite and Galena
Touissit, Touissit-Bou Beker Dist., Jerada Province
8.7 x 5.5 x 6.3 CM (cabinet)
A superb Tarnowitzite cabinet specimen from Touissit that has no damage and great esthetics. The matrix is nearly all Tarnowitzite, with minor clear Cerussite and Galena. All the smaller crystals are perfectly transparent, the larger ones are typical milky and very sharp. Touissit has been closed for decades but for a short while it produced some of the worlds finest Plumbo-Aragonites rivaling the best from Tsumeb.This is an especially choice specimen that displays well from all sides. Ex Charles Noll collection with several additional old labels included.
