This is a beautiful and colorful example of bright yellow Sklodowskite,on green Cuprosklodowskite needles, almost giving a “fried egg” (uranium egg? 😉 kind of appearance. A great example of these two colorful and sought-after uranium minerals from the classic locality for both minerals, the Musonoi mine in the Congo. From an old European collection. Rare!
