As Austria is missing in your Anglesite article I want to show you two specimens of Mine Stefanie in Bad Bleiberg.

Can we get pictures of the entire specimen? We rarely use images showing just part of the specimen.

I should have known already. Here are the pictures of the entire specimens. I am not sure if they are good enough.

Yes, they are good enough. I put the images in photoshop and lighted up the shadows and in one case applied a little minor color correction which I think makes the specimen look a bit better. When you are taking pictures of a dark mineral like galena it is better to take the pictures on a light colored background, I generally used a light gray. Otherwise the dark outline of the dark mineral tends to disappear against the dark back background.

Thank you, Rock!
One time I think I will be able to make good pictures after all your lessons.
