Zeunerite from
Wheal Gorland, St Day, Cornwall, England, UK

Comments:Kingsbury reference. Kingsbury and Hartley (1960): A sample of this material, examined shortly after collection, was shown to be zeunerite, with n 1.608 +- 0.001 and giving X-ray powder-pattern spacings almost identical with those for synthetic hydrous zeunerite given by J. Weiss-Frondel in Amer. Min., 1951, vol. 36, p. 252, and distinct from those of meta-zeunerite with 5-8 H2O."
