anglesite-pic2.jpg Anglesite occurs in weathered deposits of lead ore, formed by the oxidation of deposits of galena. It is actually found as coatings, or crusts on galena, and can either be masses surrounding a galena core, or crystals, which fill the cavities of galena. Anglesite is often confused with cerussite, wulfenite, smithsonite mimetite, pyromorphite, and limonite.

Anglesite is part of the baryte group. It shares the same structure as baryte, and has similar looking crystals that are normally found as flat blades or pendent columns jutting from a rock. However, anglesite is 50% more dense than the already heavy baryte, due to its lead content, which is 74 %.
