This specimen would certainly not win any prizes in the beauty stakes but is a mouth-watering delight for the connoisseur of classic British minerals and mining history. Two thickly crystallised areas of translucent, greyish-cream Anglesite sit on the side of a somewhat hackly matrix of granular Galena with a sooty grey-black patina. The specimen is from the Wanlockhead mining district in southern Scotland, then in the county of Dumfriesshire, but now Dumfries and Galloway. Such specimens from the Wanlockhead-Leadhills ore field are seldom seen, making this a rather rare and desirable example to add to any comprehensive collection.
