Anglesite


Mineral: Anglesite
Chemistry: PbSO4
Size: 132 mm
Owner: Crystal Classics
Photographer: Olga Kaspera

A very large and striated crystal (132 mm) of partly gemmy, pale-yellow anglesite, with a few smaller and similar anglesite crystals associated (see Photograph 2).  The combination of size, colour, and diaphaneity is quite unusual for Tsumeb.

The specimen was formerly in the collection of Franz Lammer (Austria), who purchased it from Peter Rath (Tsumeb) in 1983.
