A glassy and translucent see-through single crystal of Anglesite, with robust form. This Anglesite is a wedge-shaped, tabular single crystal with sharp edges and faces. At first glance, it looks like a pearl-off-white color benitoite, pseudo-triangular. Close inspection of the crystal faces reveals barely perceptible horizontal striations. There are a few "snowflake-like" spots internal to the crystal for added effect and this dual sided crystal can be displayed from the front or back. In excellent condition with a touch of matrix at the base. A significant locality Anglesite as a small miniature "toenail" specimen, I cannot recall seeing another quite like this.
