A beautiful and aesthetically shaped combination uranium specimen from the famous Musoni Mine of Zaire. Two nests of brilliant green cuprosklowdowskite needles to about 1 centimeter rest on dark green torbenite, on contrasting matrix. These are the best metallic, neon-green, striking c-sklos ever found and this old find from the mid-1970s remains the standard for the species. This is from the miniatures collection of Carlton Davis. 6.3 x 4.4 x 2.2 cm
