EYZ11AN9: A novelty for the summer of 2021 and, in all likelihood, the best known for the species so far. Imayoshiite occurs in numerous very sharp crystals, with a tabular habit and hexagonal contour, transparent, very lustrous and between colorless and slightly yellow, occuring together with spheroidal growths of pinkish Bultfonteinite and with small white fibrous coatings of some Tobermorite group species, on Andradite matrix. These specimens have been analyzed and we will send a copy of the analysis to the buyer. To learn more about this species and the rest of the paragenesis discovered so far in this mine, it is essential to read the article 'Rare Borate Minerals from the Shijiangshan-Shalonggou Deposits, Hexigten Banner, Inner Mongolia, China' whose authors are César Menor-Salván, Berthold Ottens and Ed Richard, featured in Rock & Minerals magazine, September-October 2021, Volume 96, Number 5.
