Katanga Mineral Specimens

Katanga Province is located in the south eastern corner of The Democratic Republic of the Congo. I worked there for three weeks during two visits there in late 2009. Most of my time was spent in Lubumbashi trawling for fine pieces. This particular piece was bought in the United States and was formerly in the collection of Marc Weill. It is an important example of this rare uranium bearing silicate species that reached its ultimate development at the Musonoi Mine. It is near Kolwezi.
