Cerussite, classic German locality
stock #0078-JM-3467
Friedrichssegan Mine, near Bad Ems, Nassau , Lahnstein, Rhien-Lahn Distr
Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
6.9 x 6 x 3.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $300
Fall 22

Jackstraw type Cerussite crystals on a contrasting gossan and Quartz matrix. From the old Friedrichssegan Mine near the classic Bad Ems Nassau area, a nice example for the locality and in a form that is a bit unusual. Ex John Marshall collection, obtained in a trade with Ernie Schlichter in 1995. Labels and catalog card are included. This mine closed in 1913 and was long ago a source of some excellent Copper, Zinc and Lead species, especially Pyromorphites. Older labels show this locale as a part of the Bad Ems district but today changes put this a few meters over the line in the Rhein-Lahn district.
