|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.
