Parsonite with minor Torbernite, Dewindtite? etc. (Ref: 20.1-894-(ZS-PNS4129))

La Faye Mine, Grury Charolles, Saone et Loire, Bourgougne-Franche-Compte, France
41mm x 36mm x 26mm
minID: 07J-Y9Y
$450
Bright yellow crystals of the rare Lead Uranyl Phosphate Parsonite are on several surfaces, some mixed with green Torbernite. Usually Parsonite is a specie for micromounting but this is a colorful and displayable specimen. Strong magnification also shows what appears to be some orange and yellow crystals of Dewindtite, another rare specie associated with Uraninite. This is not confirmed by x-ray, but this mine is one of the best sources of the specie and this appears to match well. The zones of Parsonite are quite large and and seen by naked eye. The tiny crystals with magnification show they are in radiating sprays and clusters of needles. This was previously in the collections of Kay Robertson and Terry Szenics who are both well-known as knowledgeable, selective and tasteful lovers of minerals.
