Note on the mineral list: Previously reported lime and portlandite are of anthropogenic origin (matrix of jasper + Portland cement) used for the mine buildings [Refs.: 1) Ciriotti, M.E., Möckel, S. (2004): Novità 2003 da Gambatesa: manganarsite (3° ritrovamento mondiale), calce (“lime”) e portlandite. Micro (UK report), 1/2004, 7-12. and 2) Marchesini, M., Bracco, R., Ciriotti, M.E., Möckel, S. (2007): Niente "calce" e "portlandite" a Gambatesa. Micro (UK report), 1/2007, 67-68].
