Might

I agree it just might be anthacina but we cannot tell from the mine alone and one picture - though it does show some fine detail.
I am here because I am researching my own post today and will put a link here when it's up and running.

confirmed

I have agreed but I may be the only one. I have completed my post and all the research needed for a positive ID. My find, first for the County, has been confirmed by a UK leading expert.
