If You are looking Denmark under Localities, You will see Faroe Islands, but not Greenland. Denmark is devided in 5 Regions, but no minerals from Bornholm, where we have Rocks. To my surprise is roaldite and fougérite on the list, but we have more then 20 Minerals in heavy sand all bigger and more common. I do not se the my nice microcline xl from Christiansø, zirkon xl from Hanbjerg, dolomite, Faxe, glaukonite, Arnager, vivianite, Hollerup, struvite, Limfjorden, gadolinite, Klippeløkken and Gudhjem, coelestin, Moen and halite from deep soils. It is a question how small - heavy sand - and how deep in the soil any localities are? Infact we also have gold, but in the North Sea and it is there over longer time then the fougérite.

If there are published references for individual localities, just add the data (first localities, if missing, then minerals with references).
If there is no published reference and the mineral identification is 100% ok, you can also use "Hans Closter collection" as a reference.

Dear Uwe Kolitsch

I have tried without results. The best publication is:
O.B. Bøggild: Danmarks Mineraler. (Summary. The Minerals of Denmark." Danmarks Geologiske Undersøgelse. II. Række. Nr. 71. København 1943.
It is old infomration. I just mentioned minerals from my collection.

Thanks Hans,
I have added the Bøggild ref. to the Denmark page.

Since all mentioned minerals are in your collection, you can then add the minerals (and first localities if these are missing) and use "Hans Closter collection" as a ref.
If some minerals have been analysed (e.g., the gadolinite), then please add the method of identification if you know it.

How about anatase in fissures in flint :)
