Anglesite Ps. Tennantite, on Galena
Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 10.0 x 8.6 x 6.0 cm
Ex. Dr. Gary Hansen
Large and impressive pseudomorph in which a very significant 4.7 cm Tennantite has been replaced by Anglesite. The sparkly, gray Anglesite has completely replaced four Tennantite crystals, with only the very bottom one being cleaved. The three dominant pseudos are all virtually complete. The Anglesite even has a soft, yellow-white fluorescence. A very good, aesthetic pseudomorph of large proportions.
