Clinoclase from
Mindingi Mine (Mindigi Mine), Kambove District, Haut-Katanga, DR Congo

Locality type:Mine
Classification
Species:Clinoclase
Formula:Cu3(AsO4)(OH)3
Comments:The story about the clinoclose from Mindingi goes that the first specimens where found on a small dump.
That dump was often used as camping ground by the collectors who came to visit the mine.
One day, there was a heavy rain and a not specified collector dug a little trench around his tent to keep it dry. There he found the clinoclase.
No specimens where found in the mine itself so it's a mistery were they whrere found in the deposit.
Abundance at site:Rare
Confirmation
Validity:Believed Valid
References
References:Lapis 17(3), 13-40 (1992)
