8GG-WEUJahnsite-(NaFeMg), Jahnsite-(CaMnMg), Jahnsite-(NaMnMg), Jahnsite-(CaMgMg)

Tip Top Mine, Fourmile, Custer Mining District, Custer Co., South Dakota, USA

The center portion of the crystal, which is the central part of the yellow
zone just below the orange band is the new Jahnsite (NaFeMg). The base,
which isn't shown in the photo is the new Jahnsite (NaMnMg). The orange band
I believe to be the old Jahnsite (CaMnMg) and the above the band is the
again the new Jahnsite (NaFeMg) which finally phases into another new
Jahnsite (CaMgMg) at the tip. According to Kampf et al (2008), 80% of the
crystal by volume is Jahnsite (NaFeMg). There were insufficient amounts of
crystal to perform the necessary work to fully describe the other two new
Jahnsites.
