D85-MLAArsenmedaite, Medaite

Molinello Mine, Ne, Graveglia Valley, Genoa, Liguria, Italy

Field of View: 3 mm

Orange, elongated prismatic crystals of arsenmedaite with reddish, subhedral crystals of medaite.
This specimen is part of the holotype and was collected in the 1980s by Manlio Callandria, a local mineral collector.
In spite of some macroscopic differences between the two species, in general they are not visually recognizable due to the presence of intermediate members.
