Crystal System:
A synonym of Mathiasite
Originally described from Yimeng Mtns (Yimeng Shan), Linyi Prefecture, Shandong Province, China. First published as a new mineral before being approved by IMA. Lu & Peng (1987) however showed by microprobe and crystal structure analysis that "Mongshanite" is identical with Mathiasite. [See further discussion on Message Board at]
