Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Shaba (Katanga), Congo (Zaire)
Toenail, 2.9 x 2.9 x 2.2 cm
The deep-green wulfenite-like form of these torbernites makes them one of the most eye-catching of minerals. This specimen has the classic deep green color, superb form, excellent clarity, and beautiful luster that represents the unchallenged FINEST OF SPECIES from a particular series of finds now some 20-25 years ago. The overall balance and aesthetics are terrific, making this a killer competition-level miniature by any standard. It is complete all around, too. OLD FIND - NOT FOUND In THIS QUALITY SINCE!
