Mineralpedia Details for Parascholzite
Named after the Greek word para, meaning “near”, and for being a dimorph of scholzite. Parascholzite is a rare mineral found in just a few localities including Germany and here in South Dakota at the Tip Top mine in the Black Hills, and also likely localities in Zambia, Australia, and Spain. Parascholzite occurs as a secondary mineral and is a product of the alteration of phosphates in granite pegmatites.
