Africa106 - Smithsonite and Willemite - Berg Aukas, Grootfontein District, Otjozondjupa Region, Namibia

Good specimen of pale yellow smithsonite and salmon-colored willemite from Berg Aukas. The smithsonite has the "wheat sheaf" crystal form common from this locality, some of which are doubly-terminated, and measures to 2.6 cm. The willemite is fluorescent. Better in person - it was difficult to photograph due to the low contrast of the smithsonite crystals. 6.2 x 5.1 x 2.2 cm.

Red, lustrous, translucent doubly-terminated cuprite crystals to 1.1 cm are on blue-green chrysocolla. Most crystals, including the largest, are in excellent shape. The Dikuluwe Mine is west of the better known Mashamba West Mine and specimens from here are less common. 8.4 x 8.0 x 3.6 cm.

Africa112 - Cuprite on Chrysocolla with Malachite - Mashamba West Mine, Kolwezi District, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaïre)

The light blue chrysocolla of this specimen provides an excellent contrast to highly lustrous, red cuprite crystals which measure to 1.2 cm. There is also some bright green sprays of primary malachite present; the sprays measure to about 6 mm. I believe the brown crystals present are baryte. 4.5 x 3.3 x 2.9 cm.
