PostPosted: Jan 19, 2024 15:24    Post subject: Mashamba West Mine Unknown - need help with ID please  

I attach two images of Kolwezite with Malachite on Cobaltoan Calcite from the Mashamba West Mine in DRC. There is a whitish to pale yellow species which I am having difficulty identifying. I assume they are one and the same but it may be two separate species. Any suggestions most welcome. Thank you!
