HALLO TO ALL.
We found this stone which is hard and it clots milk and cuts glass.It was in a cave.
It weighs 278gms. We don't know what is it.At fist glance you will think it is a quartz but it is not.
We searched and found it looked like anglesite.
Will someone tell us what is it?
Thanks

A lot of things will scratch glass. You don't need a diamond to replace a glass window.

Take it to a local college geography department and ask them for help.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

not anglesite for sure because you said it cut glass that is hard but anglesite is "soft" (grade 3 on the mohs reference scale)

hardness of a mineral as like density and powder colour is a diagnostic element, if your sample is transparent se if you could read trough it, if you see "double" across the mineral is a birifrangent one.
