Anglesite, Galena
Cabinet, 11.5 x 7.0 x 5.3 cm
Sunshine no. 2 Adit, Blanchard Mine (Portalas-Blanchard Mine), Bingham, Hansonburg District, Socorro Co., New Mexico, USA
A very nice specimen of the early alteration of Galena to Anglesite. These sparkly and very attractive pieces are always a favorite target at the Blanchard Mine, but rarely do you fine them this good (finding them, then getting them out, of the silicified limestone is quite a chore). The largest of these attractive Galenas is 2.2 cm.
