Description

This superb Siegerland oldtimer is showing a bunch of excellent developed, brownish crystals of anglesite on matrix. They are rich of faces, silky lustrous and sharp edged as well. So far I can see, the translucent crystals are pristine. Good German anglesites are exceedingly rare and hence sought after and expensive. This is a great mini. Comes with an old label.
