Available data support the view that certain types of Pb minerals are well absorbed (e.g., cerussite, Mn/Pb oxide), whereas other forms are poorly absorbed (e.g., galena, anglesite).
These were derived from galena and cerussite, minerals mined around the Red Sea.
Natural cerussite (Pb[CO.sub.3]) from Tsumeb, Namibia, was used as a standard for Pb (0.8393 mass fraction PbO).
Examples of these are synthetic cerussite or lead carbonite ([PbCO.sub.3]), synthetic anglesite or lead sulfate ([PbSO.sub.4]) and synthetic crocoite or lead chromate ([PbCrO.sub.4]).

Generally speaking, the Leichts were offering exceptional Tsumeb specimens from the Grosch and Moller collections and cerussite from the Eileen Kokinos collection, both of these collections dating back to the 1960s.
A magnificent transparent gemstone, this is the world's largest faceted specimen of the mineral cerussite. The gem's rarity and the difficulty in cutting it has meant there are few large faceted stones in existence.
These, first briefly described by Knopf (1914), included linarite, caledonite, anglesite, wulfenite, hemimorphite and cerussite.
From the Christoff prospect, Kaokoveld--also inaugurated by Key in summer 2009--come loose, sharp V-twins of cerussite measuring from 2 to 4 cm, with medium luster and translucency, rendered silky gray by sulfide inclusions.
Exploitation of lead ore veins around Badenweiler began during Roman times, and between about 1750 and final cessation of mining in 1926 many fine specimens of mimetite, pyromorphite, galena, cerussite, fluorite and other minerals emerged from the district.
Pyromorphite and cerussite are common in small amounts on the dumps, but the Brae Fell mine is distinctive for being only the second known locality for the relatively new species mattheddleite.
Specimens of jackstraw cerussite were also recovered, unusual for this district and for the British Isles.
