The recent finds of pargasite from "Yuang Yang (Yueng Yang), Wenshan, Yunnan Province, China" are really from this locality.
Yuang Yang is, in fact, a small city in Yunnan Province where mineral dealers frequently offer Vietnamese specimens.

There are numerous quarries spread along a 12 km line in this area, all generally labelled "Luc Yen", although some should probably be renamed.

NOTE: All of the analysed 'fluor-cannilloites' are pargasite (see http://www.mindat.org/mesg-106-259756.html, http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-69925.html and http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-198029.html). Hauzenberger et al. (2005) report intense green pargasite in association with red spinel from Luc Yen. This pargasite has been confirmed by EPMA and single-crystal XRD.

'Liddicoatite' ?
Formula: Ca(Li2Al)Al6(Si6O18)(BO3)3(OH)3(OH)
Description: According to Russo & Escaut (2006) Dr. Pezzotta has analyzed pale red to pastelred colored tourmaline from one pocket found in 2004 and found these to be Ca-rich and consist of liddicoatite (bright pastelred areas) and darker core of elbaite. Later chemical analyses did not find any tourmaline of liddicoatite composition. It is not known if the analysis where made of samples from the 2004 or the 2005 pockets. However new analysis are needed to establish correct species according to the new nomenclature of the tourmaline supergrop.
