Schoepite Pseudomorph After Rutherfordine
Musonoi mine, Kolwezi, Katanga, Democratic Republic of Congo
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.1 x 3.0 cm
A colorful, rich, highly representative specimen of the classic Schoepite pseudomorph after Rutherfordine from the famous Musonoi mine. It consists of very small (1 mm) crystal clusters of a canary yellow color. This specimen was recovered during the removal of the U-dump in the early 90s. Musonoi has ceased producing minerals since then. Not a top specimen perhaps, but at a reasonable price.
