Hübnerite from
Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou, Hunan, China

Locality type:Mine
Comments:Data presented by Chen (1981) show a significant excess of manganese over iron (Fe:Mn ranging from 1:4 to 3:4) in all analyzed samples of wolframite from the vein-type ore bodies. Likewise, the samples from the quartz vein ore bodies used in the study by Cao et al. (2009) have been shown to be hübnerite. Ottens and Cook (2005) however state that wolframite is predominantly ferberite and hübnerite was only found in one single pocket, suggesting that their samples came mainly (all ?) from the skarn-type ore bodies.
Validity:Believed Valid
