Mineral Specimen #5225    Kleinite

McDermitt Mine (Cordero Mine), Opalite District, Humboldt Co., Nevada, USA

Ex. Steve Pullman

(Hg2N)(Cl,SO4)·nH2O

Micro yellow crystals of this rare mercury nitrogen chlorosufate are well displayed on the surface of these three specimen. The color will change to a darker, more orange color when exposed to light and then revert to yellow when put back into the dark. There are well formed small yellow crystals mixed with a more orange colored crust. This orange colored crust looks considerably different in habit and is likely a different species. A possiblilty is Radtkeite Hg 3S2ICl for which this is the only known location.

Condition: Good

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable

Box measures 6.35 cm by 6.35 cm.
