TORBERNITE  Palermo Mine, N. Groton, NH
0.4 mm tabular torbernite crystal on rockbridgeite
Species:           TORBERNITE    Cu(UO2)2(PO4)2·12H2O
Locality:         Palermo Mine, N. Groton, NH
Specimen Size: 0.4 mm tabular torbernite crystal on rockbridgeite - two views
Field Collected: Walter Lane
Catalog No.: u1200
Notes: First view with Canon G9 and Meiji EMZ5TR trinocular port. Second view with Canon T3i, Nikon Plan 10 objective lens. (Rotated 180) The T3i photo is better, but rear of crystal still lacks focus. A second T3i attempt was no better.

TORBERNITE    Plume Mine, N. Groton, NH
~ 1.5 mm FOV
Species:           TORBERNITE  
Locality:          Plume Mine, N. Groton, NH
Specimen Size: ~ 1.5 mm FOV
Field Collected: Bob Willken
Catalog No.: A Bob Wilken specimen and photo
Notes: These green clusters were initially thought to be pharmacosiderite due to their proximity to weathering arsenopyrite. However, an EDS analysis showed this to be torbernite, (this EDS plot analysis is for this specific specimen).

TORBERNITE   Keyes Mine, Orange, NH
0.3 mm cluster of torbernite crystals

Species:           TORBERNITE
Locality:          Keyes Mine, Orange, NH
Specimen Size: 0.3 mm cluster of torbernite crystals, two views
Field Collected: Found in box of uncleaned, untrimmed, Keyes Mine specimens collected by Leroy Grant of Albany, NH (deceased). Collected in the 1970's.
Catalog No.: u2237
Notes: Green crystals not fluorescent. A dark blue copper mineral (bornite?) is close-by. Matrix is small, rust coated, muscovite crystals, typical of the Keyes #1 Mine. Phillip Morrill does not report torbernite from the Keyes Mines. Several groups of pale-blue, fluorescent yellow, apatite crystals are also present on this specimen.
