Anglesite Ps. After Cerussite
Central Mine, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 6.0 x 3.5 cm
Ex. Robert Nowakowski
This is an extremely fine example of a rare pseudomorph from this locality, and I think not common from any locale for that matter. The complex, reticulated twins of cerussite have been entirely replaced by its cousin species, the more sturdy and stable (and nicely sparkly!) anglesite. The piece is beautiful for its combination of geometry and sparkly coating. I have seen others, usually clunky, but have simply not seen such a nice example for sale, for aesthetics. ex Robert Nowakowski collection, and an old classic. Joe Budd photos.
