Anglesite


Anglesite is a lead sulfate with same crystal structure as both baryte and celestine (Antao, 2012). While known since the eighteenth century, it was François Sulpice Beudant (1787-1850) who dubbed this species anglesite in his seminal 1832 Traité Élémentaire de Minéralogie. The name recalls the type locality at Anglesey, Wales, United Kingdom.

Anglesite forms cream colored crystals to 1.0 cm on a limonite matrix. This long known locality is now in development for silver-lead-zinc production by Americas Gold and Silver Corporation.
