Anglesite Crystals – Tynagh Mine, County Galway, Ireland

Anglesite Crystals

Northgate Dumps,

Tynagh Mine,

County Galway,

Ireland

Collected in 1994

 

A super example of beautifully formed anglesite crystals from this classic Irish mine. The crystals fill a vug in heavy pyrite rich matrix with larger crystals overgrowing an earlier first generation of smaller crystals.

Alas, the location has been largely redeveloped with a new power station having been built on the dumps where this specimen was collected. Therefore specimens of this quality are becoming very hard to obtain!
