Description

An old time Tasmanian classic and arguably the source of the finest jack straw cerussite in Australia. This cluster of snow white jackstraw cerussite crystals is on a dark reddish gossan matrix and very well balanced and displays beautifully. It is easy to see why these are so sort after by advanced collectors.

Acquired in the late 1990's from the Brian Shelton Collection
