If you are into the paragenesis and the geochemistry of mineral specimens this is a great study piece from a famous, classic mineral locality. The outer edges of a thick Galena wall and the blocky nature suggest that this is a large altered and corroded Galena crystal filled with compact yellowish Anglesite. Other minerals may exist.
