CERUSSITE  Mineral Hill, Wakefield, NH
1.5 mm prismatic cerussite crystal with steep pyramid termination

Species:           CERUSSITE

Specimen Size: 1.5 mm prismatic cerussite crystal with steep pyramid termination
Field Collected: Gene Bearss (2011)
Catalog No.: A Gene Bearss collection specimen

CERUSSITE  Mineral Hill, Wakefield, NH
1 mm hexagonal, prismatic, crystal

Species:           CERUSSITE
Locality:         Mineral Hill, Wakefield, NH
Specimen Size: 1 mm hexagonal, prismatic, crystal
Field Collected: A Gene Bearss collection specimen
Catalog No.:
Notes: There are actually a pair of parallel hexagonal cerrusite crystals here. But from this view, the rear crystal is obscured. This extreme prismatic form is unusual for the Mineral Hill locality. Gene was uncertain of the species identity, so it was analyzed. The EDS analysis indicated the species was cerussite. (The vertical lines on the plot are Pb markers. Elements lighter than Na do not show on plot).

CERUSSITE    Palermo Mine, N. Groton, NH
3 mm field of view - indistinct cerussite crystals
Species:           CERUSSITE  
Locality:          Palermo Mine, N. Groton, NH
Specimen Size: 3 mm field of view - indistinct cerussite crystals
Field Collected: Bob Whitmore (found in tub of Palermo "rocks" gifted by Bob)
Catalog No.: 2004 - cataloged as a galena specimen - as this is the principal mineral present.
Notes: Not tested - intimate association with galena makes cerussite the most likely species. Cerussite is reported from Palermo.
