Anglesite

A group of colourless-white anglesite crystals (to 20 mm), with the dominant crystal striated and showing the characteristic "Roman sword" termination. Some of the crystals show pale-yellow phantoms due to the presence of unidentified inclusions, or trace-element chemistry, incorporated during the growth process.
