Several pale yellow Anglesite crystals rest on the heavy galena base of this specimen. Though many of these crystals are damaged, most have only minor damage and only a few are obviously broken. They show excellent orthorhombic prismatic form, with well-defined edges and clean faces that possess an adamantine luster. All are transparent and very clear; only internal fractures provide any interference. The largest and most complete of these crystals has dimensions of 0.4 x 0.3 x 0.2" (1.0 x 0.8 x 0.5 cm). The galena base on which they rest is formless and essentially massive, but shows definite crystalline tendencies; a few shallow veins of colorless Anglesite penetrate it.
