Extremely rare. Probably second oxidation zone (?).
- 2nd Oxidation Zone
Paragenetic and General Notes
Described from a single (?) specimen from an old German collection (Belendorff, 2006). Parkinsonite occurs as indistinct, orange-red crystals or rounded, translucent aggregates of crystals (to 1 mm), on cerussite with surface alteration to hydrocerussite. Associated minerals are brucite, calcite, dolomite, and wulfenite.
Belendorff (op. cit.) proposed the following paragenetic sequence:
Cerussite (w. hydrocerussite) >> wulfenite >> dolomite >> parkinsonite >> calcite (rhombohedral) >> brucite >> sepiolite >> calcite (scalenohedral)
