Description

Nice specimen from the extinct Shinkolobwe mine, the most famous uranium locality in the world.
Dense intertwined of thin orange curite needles surround an area of darker crystals due to probable impregnation of cobalt minerals (heterogenite). In many places the matrix is covered by dense bright yellow soddyite crystals. 

Interesting and beautiful sample.
