Hi,
Epitiaxy is a Pete's specialty. I dedicate him (Photos of epitaxy - (16) this epitaxy of torbernite on saleeite, little known and very rare.
Shinkolobwe mine is currently flooded. It was it who provided the infamous uranium in 1945.
By cons, it is also one of the most remarkable sites for uranium compounds. Shinko is an encyclopedia ... I had the opportunity to illustrate it.
See http(:)//www(.)agab(.)be
Roger.

Wonderful images of a not-surprising epitactic relationship, Roger. Thanks!

Saleeite is monoclinic, but has a pseudo-tetragonal form that matches well with torbernite.
