Uranophane, Baryte
Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 5.9 x 2.5 cm
Wolsendorf Fluorite mining District, Schwandorf, Upper Palatinate, Bavaria, Germany
Pastel-yellow and green radial tufts of acicular uranophane richly line a very well-placed vug in matrix on this excellent specimen from the well-known Wolsendorf fluorite district of Bavaria, Germany. The uranophane is nicely complimented by a couple of brown, radioactive baryte crystals. There is even a vug lined with hematite-tinted quartz crystals on the bottom of the piece, as a bonus. Ex. Charles Hansen Collection.
