Killer combination piece of fine burnt-orange Powellite crystals up to several mm growing alongside small (up to 3 mm) very gemmy Scorodites. I have not seen this combination before together on one piece from here, and to find it in such a good specimen from the world's greatest mine, well, it speaks for itself. Charlie sight-ID'd this piece and held it back in his Tsumeb rarities suites.
