Greek cerussite in so large crystals is extremely rare. This specimen comes from an old find of jackstraw, white cerussite and is an excellent example. All of this material is not stable and breaks apart in smaller and smaller pieces if not treated properly. I had it stabilized and it is now safe to handle and ship. Unfortunately, most of these pieces were destroyed because of the lack of knowledge of local people on how to stabilize the specimens.
