In January 1994, approximately 50 specimens of the olivenite material were collected (only 6 other occurrences in Mexico) with 4 of these having the associated clinoclase (first mention from Mexico). The presence of clinoclase was confirmed by Raman spectroscopy in July 2011 by Marcus Origlieri at the University of Arizona. Olivenite was previously confirmed by Excalibur in October 1999 and re-confirmed by Origlieri in 2011.
