Wavellite from
Mount Ida Mountain Mine, Mt Ida, Montgomery Co., Arkansas, USA

Locality type:Mine
Classification
Species:Wavellite
Formula:Al3(PO4)2(OH,F)3 · 5H2O
Comments:From Rock Currier."I have checked with James Zigras who is involved in quartz and wavellite mining in Arkansas and he says that the four images of wavellite are from Mauldin Mountain Quarries, Mauldin Mt., Montgomery Co., Arkansas, USA. Shall I change them? He says, and has confirmed with Shane Manley, a long time digger of quartz and wavellite in Arkansas, that the Mount Ida Mountain Mine, Mt Ida, Montgomery Co., Arkansas, USA was only a quartz mine and never produced wevellite and that this mine operated a long time ago and that it is unlikely that any of the quartz specimens pictured actually came from that mine. It might be better to just move them to the user only galleries."
