Mineral Specimen #6966    Arsenogorceixite (labeled as Weilerite) on Quartz

Clara Mine, Oberwolfach, Ortenaukreis, Freiburg Region, Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany

Type Location

5 x 3.1 x 3.6 cm
2 x 1.2 x 1.4 in


Ex. Wolfgang Henkel


This mineral was originally labeled as Weilerite but later the species was redefined and the Weilerite specimens were then considered to be Arsenogorceixite. Since the Henkel label shows the location being in West Germany (BRD), it can be assumed it is prior to 1990 when Germany was reunited and the abbreviation was thereafter no longer used. Arsenogorceixite was first published in 1993. Despite that, a Google search will reveal specimens of Weilerite from the Clara mine both for sale and recently sold. The Arsenogorceixite is present as the crust of yellow green micro crystal on the underlying Quartz crystals.

Condition: Excellent

Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
