I´m a colector from Viseu, Portugal.
I'm a sistematic colector, but my main interests are uranium minerals, phosphates, Sb minerals and all portuguese minerals.

ET1-JQ0Vandenbrandeite : Cu(UO2)(OH)4, Kasolite : Pb(UO2)[SiO4]·H2O, Cuprosklodowskite : Cu(UO2)2[HSiO4]2·6H2O, Uranophane : Ca(UO2)2[HSiO4]2·5H2O, Digenite : Cu9S5, Uraninite : UO2

Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Kolwezi District, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga, Democratic Republic of Congo

This is a slab of the Uranium lode from Musonoï Extension.
It contains, from the outside towards the inside, dark green Vandenbrandeite, orange Kasolite, apple green Cuprosklodowskite, yellow Uranophane, gray Digenite ( who is very Selenium rich in Musonoï ) and black Uraninite. Perhaps some other species too but not distinguishable.
Ex Bruno Van Mol specimen.
The only one I have seen since 1983. Specimen height, 105 mm.
It's beautyfull, it's Uranium ore and it's HOT.
