Here is an unusual and especially nice specimen of ANGLESITE on GALENA, which came out of Toussit, Oujda, Morocco. The specimen is notably heavy due to its high specific gravity (anglesite is a secondary lead mineral). This anglesite has crystallized in striated, that are uncommonly large and lustrous for the species. The crystals are translucent, and the color transitions from a delicate shade of chiffon yellow to totally colorless. The specimen dates back to the 1980's, but it has not been treated with bleach to enhance the color, as was common in that era. This is another new selection from Tucson this year, which we picked up from a Moroccan dealer in one of the Moroccan tent cities that pop up around town during the show.
