RM1610   Kasolite with wulfenite and torbernite

Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Katanga, Congo, Democratic Republic of

In my opinion, among all known radioactive minerals, kasolite is the most aesthetic. It presents forms of elongated to tabular prisms, very well defined and sharp, many of them doubly terminated and of intense yellow color, even with some transparency. It is accompanied by wulfenite crystals of orange color. The matrix is partially covered by brilliant and transparent torbernite thin tabular crystals. With some malachite. A aesthetic sample from a classic locality, to be observed with attention, nowadays it is very difficult to see good samples like these.
