Anglesite -very large crystal, classic locale
Ahumada Mine, Los Lamentos
Chihuahua, Mexico
4.3 x 3.2 x 1.2 CM (miniature)
price: $675
Dec 2018

For the Ahumada mine (los Lamentos) this is a huge crystal of Anglesite for that mine, and is partly altered to Cerussite on the surface. Ex Johansson collection, this is an older piece, pre 1940. In very good condition and well terminated as seen, (crudely doubly terminated) the crystal has retained the textbook form of the Anglesite. Los Lamentos is world famed for fine Wulfenite, Vanadinite and Descloisite but other Lead secondaries have been found over the long history of the mine. Large crystals of Anglesite are usually up to 2 CM, but at 4.3 CM this is one of the largest I have ever seen. A choice and substantial Mexican classic.
