This is a homely looking specimen, but it is indeed an Anglesite from the type locality of Anglesey. The crystals resemble blunt-shaped arrowheads from 1 to 3mm and are scattered throughout the vuggy matrix. It's actually a very desirable piece given its provenance from a mine first operated sometime in the 1760's.
