Georges Favreau's Photo Gallery

CKR-Q6WGiftgrubeite

Gabe Gottes Mine, Sankt Jakob vein, Neuenberg, Ste Marie-aux-Mines, Haut-Rhin, Grand Est, France

Field of View: 1.8 mm

Pale pink giftgrubeite clusters.

The mineral was found at the back side of a large picropharmacolite specimen, presumably issued from ancient orepiles left in the adits. The specimen was bought in search of the elusive villyaellenite.

It was analyzed using EDS, with a good match with the ideal formula.
