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.
