Cerussite, also know as white lead ore, consists of lead carbonate. It is isomorphous with aragonite. Like aragonite, it is very frequently twinned. This means that it will grow off of the same lattice points in differing angles. Cerussite was commonly used in lead paints (before they were banned,) and was a common reason for lead poisoning in children.

Metaphysical: Those who subscribe to the belief of metaphysical healing believe cerussite helps alleviate the feeling of home sickness.
