|Comments:||Very rare microcrystals possibly of this mineral occasionally found in marble. Analyses needed. |
This ID is very doubtful given that the only report of tungstenite (a rare alteration of scheelite or ferberite) from the adjacent Old Mine Park by Schairer (1931) is almost certainly a misspelling of tungstite. The scheelite (or ferberite) is restricted to the amphibolite and does not occur in the marble.
|Quality of samples:||Good crystals or rich for species - important (!)|
|Rarity at site:||Very Rare|
