ID: CC13194
Kipushite is a copper-zinc phosphate and occurs on this specimen as lustrous turquoise-green micro-crystals richly scattered over Pseudomalachite of almost identical colour.  From the Kipushi Mine in the Katanga (Shaba) region of the Democratic Republic of Congo, unsurprisingly, the Type Locality for Kipushite.  The Pseudomalachite is a slightly more blueish-turquoise-green, but with a much duller lustre.  The two species cover a friable, but stable limonitic matrix.  A good example of this rare species from the Kipushi mine.
