Bumannsfjorden, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway

Most of the year the field where the minerals are found is covered with ice and snow, and today this area is now a part of the Seiland National Park, and collecting from this area is now strictly forbidden. So not only is this a rare material but also it will not be collected more of it.

This specimen was found in the late 1980's by my father, Gunnar Mathisen.
