PhotosMalachite - Miskolc, Bükk Mts, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén Co., Hungary

I think, that the locality misidentifyed:

Szaska, near Miskolc does not exist.

Szaska right written Szászka now Sasca in Romania, near Oravita.

This locality was part of Hungary, but attached to Romania after 1919.

In the Bükk mts. are not malachite over 1 mm.

Should Szászka be added as a new locality to

Oraviţa (Oravicza; Orawitza) (http://www.mindat.org/loc-193304.html)


Is there a reference (article/book) for Szászka?
