Detailed Mineral List:

Actinolite
Formula: ☐{Ca2}{Mg4.5-2.5Fe0.5-2.5}(Si8O22)(OH)2
Reference: http://www.em.gov.bc.ca/cf/minfile/search/search.cfm?mode=capbib&minfilno=092L%20%20044
Arsenic
Formula: As
Reference: Franz Bernhard analyses
Arsenolite
Formula: As2O3
Habit: octahedral crystal coatings
Colour: colourless
Fluorescence: none
Description: Colourless < 1 mm octahedral crystals coat the exposed surfaces of the Native Arsenic botryoids. The massive, chalky-white alteration on the Native Arsenic may be a mixture of Arsenolite and Claudetite but no XRD data has been completed.
