presence of Pyrochlore in Congo, normally a classic location for crystal specimens of Pyrochlore from the Vishnevye Mts, Russia. Inter grown crystals of octahedral form are truncated by a small cubic face. Pyrochlore crystals measure to 1.1cm, having a high vitreous lustre, and a very deep red-black colour, with flashes of internal red associated with a typically etched creamy Calcite revealing the Pyrochlore crystals. An excellent specimen from the area.
