Rare Mineral

Helvine occurs in abundance at Huanggang Mine,Inner Mongolia. Geologically, the Huanggang mines are an Fe-Sn exogreisen, formed when Cretaceous-age anorogenic-type granites intruded calcaerous sedimentary rocks and metal-rich fluids migrated upward from the granitic intrusives into overlying skarn and vein deposits, forming rich polymetallic orebodies which are also rich in crystallized minerals found in abundant open pockets. Helvite-Genthelvite crystals from Huanggang are recognized as being probably the best in the world.
