While the Proctor Family Trust Collection is mainly known for it's spectacular crystals of attractive gem minerals and crystallized gold, there were a handful of rarities as well that are both unique and aesthetic. This is a beautiful and very unusual specimen, featuring abundant bright-yellow micro crystals of the rare secondary uranium mineral Curienite, which has selectively coated the impressions of fossil bivalves in limestone. The locality is also quite exotic: the Akashat Mine in Akashat, Iraq. A really neat and rare piece!
