Calciopetersite from
Altväter samt Eschig Mine, Sayda, Clausnitz - Sayda mining district, Saxony, Germany

Locality type:Mine
Classification
Species:Calciopetersite
Formula:CaCu6(PO4)2(PO3OH)(OH)6 · 3H2O
Comments:Subsequent quantitative EPMA data on the acicular xls showed that they are highly inhomogeneous (strongly variable REE and Ca contents), some parts even with As>P (slight dominance of As); some point analyses corresponded to REE-bearing and As-bearing calciopetersite (U. Kolitsch, unpubl. data).
Confirmation
Validity:Believed Valid
References
References:Kolitsch, U. (1997): Das Ca-Analogon von Petersit und einige weitere Neufunde aus dem sächsisch-böhmischen Erzgebirge und dem Vogtland. Mineralien-Welt 8 (4), 17-20.
