Anglesite (Rare Green Color!)
Monteponi Mine, Iglesias, Sardinia, Italy
Cabinet, 9.6 x 8.0 x 6.7 cm
Ex. Giancarlo Fioravanti

A rarity! Grouping of several dozen, very gemmy, highly lustrous, green-tinted Anglesite crystals on gossan matrix. I have heard of these but only seen one before in all my years, at least in the US market. They are almost legendary, and hard to obtain, obviously. The largest modified blade is 7 mm across. If the green tint is, indeed, from copper, then this would be extremely rare Cuprian Anglesite. Either way, the unusual color and unusual form make this an exceptional Anglesite in its own right. Ex Muzzoni Collection, 1977.
