Formula: {Ca2}{Al3}(Si2O7)(SiO4)O(OH)
Colour: pink
Description: Qualitative SEM-EDS by Kerry Day: Al (1.49 KeV) = 1221; Si (1.74) = 1459; Ca (3.69) = 1016; Mn (5.90) = 33; Fe (6.40) = 51; Background values 2/10 = 85/9 "Zoisite/Clinozoisite/Thulite. The smallest amount of Mn can colour an Epidote Group mineral cherry red." Clinozoisite is very common at Joppa Hill, usually pale green, sometimes colorless, very rarely pink. Zoisite does not occur at the locality. "Thulite" = Mn-bearing zoisite. "Clinothulite" = Mn-bearing clinozoisite.

Cobaltite
Formula: CoAsS
Coconinoite ?
Formula: Fe3+2Al2(UO2)2(PO4)4(SO4)(OH)2 · 20H2O
Description: There is a large degree of uncertainty about the locality in NH for this species. Only PRIMARY reference is Young, E., Weeks, A., and Meyrowitz,R., 1966, Coconinoite, A New Uranium Mineral from Utah and Arizona, Am Min v 51:651-663 which states of the species: "... two from unknown localities, one from Wyoming, and one from New Hampshire, which is certainly in a different geologic environment..." The specimen is not elsewhere mentioned or described. There has been a strong folklore belief that the coconinoite mentioned was from the Ruggles Pegmatite because so many uranium minerals were found there and, at one time, were abundant. No subsequent discoveries of New Hampshire coconinoite have been made and the original reference specimen is lost.
