RFP-ELXUM1990-28-OHF:Al Al(OH,F)3

Francon quarry, Montréal, Québec, Canada

Field of View: 2.5 mm

Minute conical bundles of UM-1990-28-OHF:Al needles from Francon Quarry. This is the most attractive form of UM1990-28-OHF:Al, and can also occur in this form as epitactic growths on weloganite parallel to c. This mineral typically occurs as whitish to bluish crusts on weloganite and other minerals within pockets and is found in nearly every vug in the upper sills at Francon Quarry in some quantity. It does not occur in any of the hematite-dawsonite-quartz vugs in the darker and less vuggy lower sill. Imaged using a Nikon DS-Ri1 camera and NIS Elements image processing software.
