Improving Mindat.orgGerasimovskite?

13th Feb 2016 00:56 UTCReiner Mielke Expert

http://www.mindat.org/photo-486269.html Gerasimovskite is supposed to be micaceous and pearly this looks earthy.

Yes, of course.:-D I am suppose, this is polylithionite.

13th Feb 2016 03:48 UTCReiner Mielke Expert

What it is? Not polylithionite.

At Hackmanite stok (pegmatite #62) all minerals of the pegmatie core (except aegirine) very often replaced by very specific porcellaneous hidden-crystaline polylithionite variety.

Hello all,

Knut Edvard has brought this thread to my attention.

Are you saying that the pale tan species in my photo is Polylithionite ?

If so, I'll check for any possible Gerasimovskite on the same specimen.

What should I be looking for?

The most realistic gerasimovskite photo on mindat is this - http://www.mindat.org/photo-183148.html

On your specimen it completely absent - it is unknown at all in pegmatite №62.
