I remember seeing the odd specimen of Anglesite from Tsumeb in this delicate platy habit during the early 1990’s but, sadly, it is a form rarely seen today. Superb sub-one millimetre thick plates of transparent smoky tan Anglesite form to 3.0 x 1.3 cm over and throughout a blackish iron-rich sulphide matrix. The Anglesite forms plates of various geometries too complex to readily describe; in this case a picture does tell a thousand words. Although great care must be taken when handling, it is fine to hold by the edges of the strong matrix, thereby ensuring no contact with the crystals themselves. It is a showy and fabulous cabinet specimen of platy Anglesite from Tsumeb, certainly a stand-out specimen in any Tsumeb display.
