RM2447   Belomarinaite

Fissure Tolbachik Eruption 2012-2013, Plosky Tolbachik volcano, Tolbachik volcano, Kamchatka Krai, Russia

Extraordinary translucent laminar specimen of belomarinaite, an extremely rare sodium and potassium sulphate, of good size and with clearly visible crystalline forms. It refers to both chemistry and structure to aphthitalite. These sulfates are formed in saline deposits and in volcanic fumaroles, as is this case. This specimen comes from the type locality for the species. A unique opportunity for systematic collectors.
