Tremolite
Formula: ☐{Ca2}{Mg5}(Si8O22)(OH)2
Reference: [Bancroft & District Mineral Collecting Guidebook, Bancroft Chamber of Commerce - 1998]
Uraninite
Formula: UO2
Habit: as fractured crystals in Calcite, occurs also with Tremolite.
Colour: black/brown & metalic
Fluorescence: none
Description: Uraninite can be easily identified in the rock with a geiger counter, and as its dark color stands out in the light rock. Crystals are usually fragments & are in the 0.3-0.5 cm range, bigger & complete crystals are rare.
