At Nordmark, an iron ore field consisting of several mines with some small manganese orebodies has yielded specimens as well; dump and in situ finds of several interesting minerals have been made, including rare manganese arsenates such as synadelphite, hematolite and allactite in small but attractive micromounts; also filipstadtite, manganostibite, katoptrite and alabandite.
Specially notable are microcrystals of samsonite, pyrostilpnite and pyrargyrite, large masses of alabandite, crude pinkish gray crystals of wenkite up to 1 cm and apophyllite in colorless to white crystals up to 2 cm, rarely associated with white harmotome crystals of the same size.
From the Urals, were masses of nearly pure scaly paragonite from Slyudorudnik, Vyshtym; pecoraite from Tscheremschanskoe; sonolite, alleghanyite, rhodonite, and alabandite from Inyltschek, Kyrgy; tobermorite, from Bazberovskoe; sellaite from Suranskoe, Bashkirien; and clintonite, from Shishimskie Gory.
