Schneebergite (of Brezina)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
The origin of the name is the Monteneve Mine (Schneeberg Mine) - [www.mindat.org]
A variety of Roméite Group

Stibiconite Group. An Fe-bearing variety of roméite.

Formerly the name "schneebergite" was used by Brezina in 1880 to describe a new calcium antimonate phase discovered at the Monteneve Mine (Schneeberg Mine) in Tyrol. Later Zedlitz in 1932 proved it to be isomorphous with roméite.
Then only in 1999 and far beyond the 50 years limit of IMA's renaming rule, the withdrawn name schneebergite was chosen for the new approved arsenate from Germany.
