Boltwoodite

Rossing Uranium Mine, Arandis District, Erongo Region, Namibia
SOLD
A small but incredibly dense aggregate of intense yellow boltwoodite crystals, from a very old find at this classic locale for the species. Interestingly, the specimen is SO dense and unusual for a boltwoodite, that at the time it was mislabeled as tsumcorite when sold with other African minerals, and ended up in a US collection labeled as tsumcorite (from Tsumeb).
