Item Description

The beautiful Anglesite crystals from Touissit are arguably the most impressive examples of the species extant. Their pleasing color, combined with large gemmy crystals makes them some of the most recognizable minerals from any world locality. This thumbnail sized specimen features a couple highly lustrous, gemmy, attractive yellow colored crystals of Anglesite measuring up 2.3 cm, with a secondary accessory Anglesite on the back sitting atop massive grey-black Galena matrix. The tow main Anglesite crystals are in excellent condition, with no major damage that I can see. This piece was almost certainly mined in the 1970s. Certainly, not recent. You don't see these on the market anymore, and they have become highly desirable classics in the years since they were found. Valued at $2,000 retail..
