Anglesite

ID: CC4127

An impressive and lustrous giant composite Anglesite crystal from the celebrated Tsumeb Mine, Namibia. The Anglesite measures an impressive 11.7cm tall and displays a fish-scale-like habit of parallel growth along the length, with gemmy transparent zones throughout.  A green, earthy mineral is present throughout, sparsely coating the reverse of the specimen and providing contrast along the lower edges to the primary display face.  There is minor damage to the very tip of the Anglesite crystal, however, it does not detract from what surely is a fantastic example of Anglesite from this locality.
