Journal of the Czech Geological Society, volume 42 (1997), issue 4, 3 - 76


Two hundred and seven secondary mineral species are described and/or referenced. Approximately seventy secondary minerals were known from the district before the present study. All known reliable data on the individual secondary minerals from Jáchymov are presented. New and more complete X-ray powder diffraction data for compreignacite, irhtemite, lavendulan, lindackerite, masuyite, mcnearite, metaschoepite, mottramite, rabbittite, rabejacite, richetite, sodium-zippeite, voglite, zellerite, zippeite, and zýkaite are presented. A list of secondary minerals arranged according to chemical composition and list of “non-secondary” minerals are included at the end of this paper.
