Ikuno mine, Ikuno-cho-ono, Asago City, Hyogo Prefecture, Kinki Region, Honshu Island, Japan

Field of View: 0.35 mm

This specimen from the University Museum, Tokyo, Japan, is a part of type sakuraiite.

Reflected plane polarized light digital image from transparency taken in oil immersion illustrating sakuraiite (grey with slightly green tint) compositionally zoned and intergrown with petrukite (greenish grey) with sphalerite (dark grey), chalcopyrite (yellow) and galena (off-white) from the Ikuno Mine, Japan. Compare with Figure 4 of Kissin and Owens (1989) in Canadian Mineralogist 27: 673-688.
