Summary: The observed order of importance of the forms of cerussite has been determined by the methods introduced by Donnay and Harker, used in a modified form. The space group derived by morphological analysis is Pmcn, as determined by X-ray diffraction. For the more common forms good agreement is found between the observed and theoretical orders of importance. The rank distribution of the more important forms is given.
