Eveite



Eveite, a manganese arsenate hydroxide mineral, was verified by [Dunn] from Sterling Hill, where it was found on a fracture surface in red willemite. It formed rare, 0.5-1.0 mm prismatic, lath-like, light-yellow crystals, associated with willemite and sarkinite. X-ray methods are useful for verification. (Dunn, 1995)
