Mineralpedia Details for Ericlaxmanite



Ericlaxmanite from Tolbachik Volcano, Kamchatka, Russia

            from Tolbachik Volcano, Kamchatka, Russia
Special Info
XRD Confirmed, EDS Confirmed, Type & Only Locality

Virtually all of the bright green crystalline areas on this specimen is Ericlaxmanite. Very few of these specimens were collected by the team of geologists from Russia including Dmitriy Belakovskiy and Igor Pekov. The team took fascinating videos while collecting on and in the  scoria cone vents under extremely hot and toxic conditions. The remoteness and altitude alone are enough of an obstacle to keep most serious collectors away from this place.  Type material is deposited at the Fersman Museum in Moscow and the new mineral was published in Mineralogical Magazine 77, 2695-2709.
