Locality type:


A gem pegmatite mining area located in secs. 25 & 36, T10S, R1W, SBM, mostly to the SE of Rincon.

The iron-bearing spinel, pleonaste, is found in the Mack and Victor veins at Rincon, occurring as small (.25 mm.) crystals associated with small garnet crystals. A few imperfect octahedra have been isolated. In fragmented form, the mineral is perfectly isotropic, and deep green in color. Blue spinel has been reported from Rincon at the Mack mine.
