Checklist of the Romanian Cave Minerals
The present note provides an updated list of Romanian cave minerals. A recent survey of the mineralogical literature reveals 104 mineral species identified in various secondary cave deposits. 35 of these minerals are either ore-related or bat guano-derived, being rather uncommon cave minerals. Many occurrences bearing rare and very rare cave minerals, such as berlinite, glaukosphaerite, koniaite, leonite, meta-aluminite, paratacamite, phosphammite, sampleite, syngenite, tinsleyite, etc. were reported within the last three years.
