Cerrusite (Morocco)

Cerrusite is a white lead ore with a hardness of 3.5 available in various colors including the colorless version seen here. It has a very high luster due, primarily, to its lead content…just as leaded crystal glass sparkles more brilliantly because of its lead content, so too does cerussite. This scintillating cushion-shaped colorless stone exhibits the classic dispersion for which the species is known—a brilliant fire of spectral colors.
Weighing approximately 65.53 carats and measuring 20.5 x 17.5 x 11.5 mm
