Abstract

The bismuth-copper phosphate mineral mrazekite, Bi2Cu3(OH)2-O2(PO4)2.2H2O, was first described from an historic copper mine near Lubietova in Slovakia. Its crystal structure was revised on material collected from Reichenbach and Gadernheim, Germany. Recently a new occurrence of well-crystallized mrazekite was discovered near the small settlement of Benambra, northeastern Victoria. It is associated with other rare bismuth-bearing minerals, including namibite, schumacherite, pucherite and several unknown species. -from Authors
