Gerhardite with Buttgenbachite on Cuprite

ID: CC17811

A very rich crystal specimen of two rare Copper Nitrates from the recent find at the Likasi Mine, Katanga, Dem Rep of Congo. Excellent deep rich blue blocky striated lustrous crystals of Gerhardite measuring to 6 mm are concentrated in a sparkling Cuprite crystal lined cavity with associated white hard clay mineral. Crystal sprays of radial-fan-like acicular crystals of Buttgenbachite measuring to 4 mm are seen on one end of the Cuprite matrix. Extensive areas of the matrix have crystalline green Malachite with pale blue Chrysocolla. A fine rare specimen from the mine.
