Tyuyamunite and Malachite
Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Western area, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
Small Cabinet, 8.9 x 8.7 x 8.1 cm
Beautiful, sharp sub-mm crystals of Tyuyamunite richly cover a carpet of underlaying velvety malachite, making this one of the richest AND most pretty examples of the species I have seen on the market. The display area is 5 x 5 cm, on matrix. Though small by some standards, the crystals are actually rather large and sharp for the species and leap out under a loupe.
