A sharp single crystal exceptionally gemmy, of this classic mineral find. Most of the best anglesites in the world came out of a few pockets in this mine in the 1970s-early 1980s, and these yellow crystals were always considered the apex. This is a large, complete thumbnail crystal with a perfect termination, gemminess, and a medium yellow color. It is more interesting than the usual "single" you might see in TN size, because it has galena/lead matrix at the bottom and infiltrated within at the base, to give it the matrixy look. Rare on the market today.
