Vandenbrandeite With Kasolite
Musonoi mine, Kolwezi, Katanga,Democratic Republic of Congo
Miniature, 5.5 x 2.2 x 4.0 cm
This is an unusually good display specimen of large Vandenbrandeite crystals, well isolated on matrix! Well developed dark green Vandenbrandeite crystal gathered together in unusual "bowtie" shapes, with small yellow Kasolite flakes decorating them. Kasolite occurs in Musonoi in this form and is easily recognizable because it shows a highly pearly luster. Some small yellowish frosted Baryte crystals are associated. The Vandenbrandeite bowties reach 5 mm, quite significant.
