Jôkokuite from
Womobi Mine, Thologolong, Towong Shire, Victoria, Australia

Locality type:Mine
Formula:MnSO4 · 5H2O
Comments:"Jokokuite tends to be the more transparent and vitreous of the three manganese sulfates, and is more irregular in form and slightly harder. It occurs either as interlocking open crusts, or as isolated shapeless grains enclosed in ilesite. The colour ranges from cream to very pale blue, the latter colour being caused by traces of copper. It is likely that bladed crystals showing varying degrees of dissolution are jokokuite, although some may have been pseudomorphed by szmikite or ilesite."
Validity:Believed Valid
