New Minerals from Lavrion Mining District, Greece

New Minerals from Lavrion District are presented by scientists in the
Mineralien Welt edition of 05/2018.




Already shortly after the finalization of the last comprehensive description of new discoveries from the Lavrion Mining District (KOLITSCH et al. 2014) new finds were made. In parts they could be named in the article mentioned above, most however were made after the publication. It is therefore now time to open a new chapter in the description of this world-famous deposit. In the meantime, new minerals for Lavrion were found especially in polished sections and presented in a short paper for a conference (KOLITSCH et al. 2015).

These and many more will be described here. In addition, an uncommon paragenesis of Uranium-bearing minerals was found in the Paleokamariza Mine #18 (SIMON & KAPELLAS 2017, RIECK 2017).

And finally, there are four completely new mineral species from Lavrion currently being studied by scientists.

All new discoveries presented here were analyzed by diffraction of X-ray on powders (PXRD) or single crystals (SXRD) and/or by semiquantitative SEM-EDS analysis.
