Zinkenite is a lead antimony sulfide I always thought of as coming from Bolivia. I had never seen a US specimen of any note, before. Here we have one, though! It is a venerable old piece from the collection of Dr. Egleston, after whom Eglestonite is named. The labels are in bad shape, but clearly legible still.
