RM3096   Cuprodongchuanite, hemimorphite and veszelyite

Sanguozhuang, Dongchuan, Kunming, Yunnan, China

Cuprodongchuanite is a mineral species with the formula Pb4CuZn2(PO4)4(OH)2 that has been approved very recently (IMA No. 2021-065); is the copper analogue of dongchuanite (IMA No. 2021-058) with the formula  Pb4ZnZn2(PO4)4(OH)2. Both species form a series and belong to the dongchuanite group, together with the zheshengite Pb4ZnZn2(AsO4)2(PO4)2(OH)2 and the cuprozheshengite Pb4CuZn2(AsO4)2(PO4)2(OH)2. Distinguishing one species from another is only possible by elemental analysis. For this reason these specimens have been analyzed by SEM-EDS.

In this specimen we have determined the cuprodongchuanite. The presence of As is detected in all the specimens studied, which would indicate that we are in a term of the series with cuprozheshengite. It would be correct to label it cuprodongchuanite-cuprozheshengite. It appears as light green globular aggregates on the colorless hemimorphite. The bluish color on the specimen is veszelyite.

RM3072   Dadsonite, boulangerite and siderite

Sant Ponç, Barceloneta de Provença, Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France

Dadsonite is a rare chloro-sulfoantimonide of lead, compositionally differing from boulangerite by this chlorine anion (1 atom of Cl for 60 atoms of S!). In the "bad-lands" area of Sant Ponç (or Saint-Pons) there are lenticular levels of siderite and calcite. The formation of this rare sulfosalt is based on the redissolution of other sulfosalts in the presence of chlorides.
The fine needles of dadsonite usually appear included in calcite, along with boulangerite. Once the calcite is removed by chemical processes, needles emerge in all their beauty. It can also be found forming radial aggregates in matrix cavities. The dadsonite from Sant Ponç can probably be considered among the best worldwide.

RM3053   Opal-AN, var. hyalite, on andesite

Tarcal Colas Északkő quarry, Kopasz-Fekete Hills, Zemplén Mts., Tarcal, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Hungary

These specimens come from an andesite quarry located in NE Hungary. This quarry is worked by Colas Északkő Co. In year 2013, hyaline beautiful specimens of opal were collected. In the quarry explosives are used to excavate the rocks, so most of the specimes dissapears. From summer 2015 access is not permitted, but some specimens were collected before... These facts make it difficult to see good samples of this quality.
Hyalite opal (opal-AN) aggregates (crown shaped) are completely transparent, like drops of water, with an exceptional brightness. They are highly fluorescent under shortwave UV and also under longwave. Sometimes they accompanied by globular aggregates of calcite-aragonite. They are disposed very aerial on a porous matrix of andesite.
