Parkinsonite In Mendpite

ID: CC1020

Parkinsonite is a very rare mineral from Merehead Quarry, Somerset, England. This is a rich example of the Lead, Molybdenum Oxychloride from the type locality. The Parkinsonite forms deep red micro masses and bands on cleveage planes in lustrous Mendipite. The Mendipite also has micro areas of yellow Paralaurionite. A real delight to study the relationships between these minerals.
