This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC12790
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 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 seldomly seen, making this a somewhat rare and desirable example to add to any good collection.
