Anglesite Ps. Galena With Cerussite
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 6.9 x 4.2 cm
Monteponi Mine, Iglesias, Sardinia, Italy
Ex. Giancarlo Fioravanti

Unusual combination specimen with both Galena and Cerussite from the famous Monteponi Mine. The discreet and sharp dodecahedrons of Galena reach up to 1.5 cm, and some have been partially altered (to anglesite, we guess), making for what seem like hollow Galena casts. The surfaces are silky and sparkly, almost certainly due to that same alteration to drusy Anglesite (or Cerussite). This is a highly desired effect, also famously seen at other locations such as the Blanchard Mine in New Mexico. The bladed Cerussites have superb luster, and are up to about 2.5 cm across. A very good, lead-rich specimen from this important old locality.
