A resplendent crystal of yellow gemmy Anglesite sitting attractively on matrix makes this piece such an incredibly balanced thumbnail! The upper third is perfectly gemmy (better than the photos can show because of light refractions), and the luster is absolutely glassy and mirror-like. It is also nice to see such a good specimen of Anglesite in the more tabular habit as usually they taper off to a point... this is more uncommon. Very aesthetic, very juicy, and just a perfect balance for the size, in a competition-quality thumbnail specimen.
