Description

Cerussite is named after Latin “cerussa” meaning “white lead”, an ancient term for artificial lead carbonate. It is colorless, white, gray, blue, or green.

Galena, also called lead glance and is the natural mineral form of lead(II) sulfide. It is lead gray and silvery in color.

Barite is known for its range of colors and varied crystal forms. Barite often replaces other minerals, and may even replace organic materials such as wood, shells, and fossils. It sometimes forms tufaceous mounds from the deposition of hot, barium-rich springs.
