Cerussite is a lead-carbonate mineral that can form into a variety of different crystal structures, sometimes in fibrous patterns, other times in granular aggregations, though generally forming pseudo-hexagonal crystals. It is a common weathering product of galena, explaining why it is typically extracted from oxidized zones of lead ore deposits. The colors of cerussite varies depending on composition and structure, with colorless, white, grey and green tinted, being the most common colors of crystals found. It is easily identifiable due to it's heavy weight and luster.
Washington state has now joined over a dozen other states to put in place “shelter in place” or “stay at home” orders. While we agree this is the correct course of action, it will have a substantial impact on our business. It effectively shuts down much of our company for several weeks.
We will continue taking orders on our website and we will have a single staff member at our warehouse to facilitate shipping of these new orders. Depending on the order volume this may mean that we do experience some shipping delays, particularly with large or fragile items that require more packaging time.
These shutdowns are particularly devastating to all small businesses who don’t have significant cash reserves and rely on constant cash flow to pay their fixed expenses (payroll, rent, loan payments, etc) We hope that you will continue to support us and satisfy your fossil fix during these trying times.
