This miniature Anglesite is one of those specimens which just makes you smile in quiet appreciation of something rather special.  From Tsumeb, various sized, broad and flattened translucent smoky-cream Anglesite crystals emerge from a matrix of brecciated granular Anglesite and metal sulphides. The crystals have sharp Roman-sword terminations with vertically striated faces, some of which are coated in a fine film, possibly a sulphide coating just a few atoms deep, that impart a slight bluish cast. The largest crystal measures approximately 2.2 x 1.9 x 0.4 cm. A delightful and quite arresting miniature Anglesite from Tsumeb.
