A beautifully gemmy and lustrous, golden-yellow anglesite thumbnail from the 1970s finds at the famous Touissit Mine of Morocco. This very glassy, large crystal is complete all-around and has a striking, chisel termination. Very nearly pristine, with only trivial edgewear. The back is contacted, but has no damage, per se. These are among the finest anglesites in the world, comparing very favorably with Tsumeb examples. Ex Carl Davis Collection and valued at $500-700. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!
