Mineralpedia Details for Feinglosite
Named in honor of Dr. Mark N. Feinglos, an American medical researcher and mineral collector who specialized in Tsumeb minerals, where the mineral gets its type locality at the Tsumeb mine in Namibia, and was the first to discover the mineral in his studies. In addition to its type locality, Feinglosite can be found, debatably, at the Christiana mine in Laurion, Greece. It occurs as a secondary mineral in chalcocite cavities from the oxidized zone of polymetallic hydrothermal ore deposits in dolostone at its type occurrence.
