Roméite





 Location Found: Franklin
     
 Mineral Note: Romeite is no longer a species name but refers to a series of minerals intermediate between oxyplumboromeite and fluorcalcioromeite. Partial chemical analyses published in Dunn (1995, p. 604) suggest that the member present in the local area is either fluorcalcioromeite or, more likely, the as-yet-unnamed hydroxyl analogue of that species.
