Name(s) in local language(s):
Herja (Herzsa), Chiuzbaia (Kisbánya)


This old mine has been producing some of the world's finest well-crystallized specimens for over a century. The mine is located close to the small village of Chiuzbaia (formerly Kisbánya), 7 km ENE of Baia Mare. [Note: Geographically, the Herja mine belongs to Baia Mare, but old specimens from Herja mine are usually labelled as Chiuzbaia (Kisbánya).]

According to Cook and Damian (1997), all the lead antimony sulfosalts are As-free.

Reference: http://minerals-of-the-carpathians.eu; Cook, N. J. & Damian, G. S. (1997): New data on "plumosite" and other sulfosalt minerals from the Herja hydrothermal vein deposit, Baia Mare district, Rumania. Geologica Carpathica 48, 387-399.
Valentinite
Formula: Sb2O3
Reference: Szakáll: Minerals of Carpathian Reg., 2004
Veenite
Formula: Pb2(Sb,As)2S5
Description: Veenite is reported by Cook & Damian (1997), but the EPMA-derived formula (Pb2.01Sb2.01S5) contains no As, therefore excluding veenite (Dan Topa, pers. comm. to Uwe Kolitsch, 2013).
