Vandenbrandeite


Vandenbrandeite is a copper uranyl hydroxide. The name honors Pierre Van den Brande (1896-1957), Belgian geologist who discovered the Kalongwe uranium deposit in the Congo (Schoep, 1932). This is an unusual specimen with bundles of crystals to 5 mm. The color is very dark green, seemingly black at a distance.
