Home > Laskowski Ⅷ – September 21 > MS1967 Nežilovite


Nežilovite is a complex oxide of lead, manganese, iron, zinc, and aluminum and a member of the magnetoplumbite group (Holtstam & Hålenius 2020). Like magnetoplumbite, nežilovite is magnetic. Bermamec et al. (1996) named the mineral for its original occurrence at Nežilovo. This locality lies in North Macedonia, a sovereign nation that changed its name from Macedonia in 2019.

This fragment of limestone hosts numerous black crystals of nežilovite, showing crude hexagonal outlines. The nežilovite crystals are warped, reaching 5 mm across. From the collection of E.R. Laskowski (1949-2020), a mining engineer who retired to Tucson, Arizona.
