Penfieldite (clear, white, yellowish, fluoresces yellow-orange under short-wave UV) Pb2Cl3(OH) /Images/picture.jpg Sierra Gorda, Antofagasta, Chile collected August 2001, acquired 2002 Quartz hemimorphite (brownish), boleite (blue), willemite (blue, fluoresces green under UV illumination), and cotunnite (clear). Several other unidentified minerals. From the collection of John Betts, #15158. According to John, "Here is the whole story:
Late last year Terry Szenics (discoverer of Szenicsite) made a new find of rare penfieldite crystals in Chile. He offered them for the first time in September 2001 at the Franklin, New Jersey mineral show. At that time I purchased a small lot, and shortly thereafter offered them for sale here on my web site.
After realizing the importance of the find, I visited Mr. Szenics at his home, not far from New York City. I went through every flat of minerals from the find. I selected the best specimens, regardless of price. I was primarily after large crystals that could be seen without magnification. Mr. Szenics subsequently offered the remaining specimens at the 2002 Tucson show, where it was one of the really new mineral finds for the year.
The penfieldite occurs as six-sided, tapering crystals that are usually colorless, though frequently have blue inclusion or coatings (boleite?). It should be noted the penfieldite fluoresces yellow-orange under short-wave UV illumination. Other minerals mixed in with the penfieldite include hemimorphite, boleite, willemite (fluoresces green under UV illumination) and most importantly cotunnite.
The importance of this new find of penfieldite cannot be overstated. Penfieldite was only known from one other location - the ancient slags at Laurium, Greece where they formed when salt water interacted with the slag minerals. This new find from Chile is at the old location described by Sam Gordon, arguably the only place where penfieldite occurs naturally.
At the 2002 Rochester Mineralogical Symposium, the esteemed rare-mineral collector Bill Pinch presented this new penfieldite find during his session on What's New in Minerals. During his presentation he stated, "This new find of Penfieldite is quite simply the best in the world." And I honestly believe that specimens I purchased in September of 2001 are the best of the best.
Since September 2001 I have had these specimens stashed to see if more would be found. To date, no more penfieldite has been recovered. The specimens offered on my site are the best I have available. "

Lemanskiite Meta-Type Specimen NaCaCu5(AsO4)4Cl . 5H2O 1140a 1140b 1140c 1140d El Guanaco Gold Mine, 93 km east of Taltal, Antofagasta, Chile (per label) acquired 2003 Gypsum Olivenite From the collection of The Arkenstone, #RL7563. Label indicates this is from the collection of Wm. W Pinch. This specimen was sold as "This specimen was in fact one that was studied by both Chet Lemanski and Bill Pinch, and comes with a label autographed by both eminent mineralogists as well as Pinch's own collection label" but the autographed label was not included in the original shipment; Rob promptly corrected the oversight. Also included with the specimen was a draft copy of the "General Information" sheet submitted to the IMA for publication of the new mineral. I find it interesting the original name was corrected ("Chetlemanskiite") on the draft, and this is reflected on MinDat.org. The draft also adds '56 km east of Panamerican Highway near Station East Catalina, Chile' to the location. The draft gives the following associations: lammerite, mansfieldite, senarmonite, a mineral from the crandallite group, rutile, anatase, talc, olivenite, iodargyritte. The draft also states "The new mineral is of a secondary origin from unknown primary minerals. Its intergrowths with lammerite indicate very acid conditions of origin (Williams, 1990)"; the "Authors'" names were Petr Ondrus and Jifi Sejkora from the Czech Republic.
This is a meta-type specimen.

Sulfur (fluorescent) S /Images/picture.jpg roadside sulfur vent, Kileau Volcano, Hawai`i Island, Hawaii August, 2003 Sulphur Quartz, Rutile, and Corundum Lab analysis at Excalibur Minerals (SEM, X-Ray) demonstrates Sulfur (95.95%), Quartz (1.99%), Rutile (1.56%), and Corundum (.50%), to account for the fluorescence (usually described as magenta and/or orange under SW) of this specimen. Note that use of mineral names in the identification is a working hypothesis based upon analysis results (that were presented as elements and chemical compounds, graphs, tables, and various images) and may be a stretch of reality.
An example specimen is on display at the Sterling Hill Mining Museum in Ogdensburg, NJ (see #1165, 1166 {and 1250}); they have independently confirmed much of my analysis.
Theories on the cause of the fluorescense are most welcome as this is still unexplained (see #1200 for any updates); micro samples are still available for serious researchers willing to share and/or publish results (please contact me).
I was with Kitty Heacox (our host on the 'Big Island' -- see my trip reports) and my wife when this specimen was collected from a roadside/roadway vent; only specimens broken off by traffic were collected.

Update December 2004:
The initial Excalibur analysis (SEM, etc) suggested Sulfur with quartz, rutile, and corundum (or elements to that effect).
I've been working with Dr. James B. Murowchick (and students) and have some additional details from XRD and other lab work. Preliminary (raw) XRD and studies found sulfur, cristobalite, silica (probably amorphous), and anatase.
The sulfur was (mostly) removed with CS2 and the insols were studied. Results show cristobalite and anatase were the strongest XRD peaks, and major secondary components, but amorphous silica, called out as opal, was not far behind. XRD also called out pyrite (that was visually confirmed with petrographic scope), and millosevichite (not confirmed with scope, but possible in some of the unidentified larger grains, and more probable in the smaller grains).
Incidently, the volume of sulfur and insols was about equal.

Sulfur with quartz, rutile, and corundum

Sulfur with cristobalite, anatase, opal, pyrite, and millosevichite


I don't think either label gives a clear explanation of why this stuff glows. A few more grams donated to science.
Any ideas? Any suggestions on what I should look for? I've still got some grams to sacrifice for my encounter with Madam Pele.
