Bismutite from
Yaogangxian Mine, Yaogangxian W-Sn ore field, Yizhang Co., Chenzhou Prefecture, Hunan Province, China

Classification
Species:Bismutite
Comments:Probably mis-identified and actually an alteration product of stibnite. Considering that Jensen (2009) could not confirm any independent bismuth minerals on contemporary specimens, the presence of bismutite appears very doubtful.
Confirmation
Validity:Unconfirmed/Questioned
References
References:Jensen, M. (2009): Mineral News 25(4), 1-11, 14
