Serifos Island, Milos, South Aegean, Greece

Dimensions: 4.5 cm x 2.4 cm x 1.5 cm
Field of View: 6 cm
Weight: 223 g

In center of specimen is the metallic mass of bismuth and perimetrically there is the oxidized zone with bismite, bismutite , bismuthinite, bismoclite and beyerite. Macroscopically we can see only bismutite with light-green color mass. The specimen analysed with SEM-EDS and XRD by Professor Vasilios Tsikouras with his student Michalis Fitros at the Department of Geology of Patra University. Specimen size 4,5x2,4x1,5 cm. The discovery of the samples was done by minerals collector Demosthenes Katsikis.
