This is the finest Anglesite thumb I have ever come across for overall aesthetics and pizzazz, and it is so reminiscent of the great Anglesite in the Houston Museum (if smaller) that it is scary. As good as the pics are, they do not do justice to how perfectly gemmy the main crystal is. That crystal is complete except for the least significant edge at lower-left where it is contacted, and there is some contact on the backside of the cluster where smaller crystals support the large one on its small pedestal of matrix. This is an absolute world-class competitive thumbnail, surely. The COLOR is simply shocking.
