Can you help make this a better article? What good localities have we missed? Can you supply pictures of better specimens than those we show here? Can you give us more and better information about the specimens from these localities? Can you supply better geological or historical information on these localities?

Mindat has only 14 localities listed for this mineral and thus far, only images of the species, both of which are below. It is likely that if many dravite tourmalines were tested, that a fair number of other feruvite localities would be found.


Feruvite
Japan
Kyushu Region, Oita prefecture, Saeki city, Kiura mine (Shin-Kiura mine; Kiura emery mine)

We need someone to tell us about the mine and the feruvite specimens that are found there.


Feruvite
New Zeland
North Island, Waikato, Repanga Island (Cuvier Island)

This is the type locality for feruvite. Mindat currently has no images of feruvite from this locality (2013). The crystals from this locality are described as being as large as 2mm.

Rock,

Starting the tourmaline group is a bold move smileys with beer.
