New finds from worldwide localities - December 2017

Last Updated: 20th Mar 2018

By Joy Desor

I started a project which will be updated from time to time and reports about new finds from worldwide localities. Samples will always be XRD checked and also have some EDS and Raman data to confirm the find.

Everything will be open source, but please ask for permission of images if you want to use them. Some samples which are mentioned within the report can be swapped or bought. Feel free to ask.

The first pdf I publish is about the first yttrium mineral from Andreasberg, rebulite new find from China and a confirmation of micheelsenite from Norway.

For comments please write me also for possible mistakes!

The file is available here for download:

Also if you want to work with me on unidentified minerals, have a look at (an updated english version will come soon)or write me.
