Chuck Adan's Photo Gallery

6YC-9F0Agaite : Pb3Cu2+Te6+O5(OH)2(CO3)

Multiple photos available
Bird Nest drift, Otto Mountain, Baker, Soda Mts, Silver Lake District, San Bernardino Co., California, USA

Field of View: 1.5 mm

Modified by CombineZP
Previously known only from one specimen, these euhedral, orthorhombic agaite crystals are from a find of about 6 crystals, including a broken skeletal crystal. Associated minerals are khinte, thorneite and what appears to be timroseite.
Robert Housley keeps a Raman pattern library of many minerals including the tellurates of Otto Mountain, which he says give very distinct Raman patterns, and matched these crystals to agaite. A previous EDS was also done which picked up some Fe in addition to the Pb,Cu, and Te but the Raman confirmed the agaite.
Collected and photographed (1st two photos) by Chuck Adan.
3rd photo credit is to Caltech.
