| Aggregates of acute and very well defined Huréaulite crystals, bright, with a very intense and deep salmon-pink color. They are with thick aggregates of dark Correianevesite crystals with curved faces and edges, radial-botryoidal Rockbridgeite growths, and dark blue massive Strengite. The Correianevesite from the Cigana mine, the type locality for this species, was identified some time ago (2006) as Reddingite. More precise modern analyses allowed identifying it as Correianevesite, a new and rare species. So, the old Reddingite from Cigana must be renamed as Correianevesite. We’ll send a copy of the analysis to the buyer.
