Abstract

The Purple Diopside Mound is almost newly discovered (2012) compared to the adjacent Wollastonite Skarn, which has been a productive locality for mineral collectors for nearly 140 years. Both have common ownership and remain active fee localities well worth visiting. We have detailed the history (Chamberlain et al. 2018) and geology (Chiarenzelli et al. 2019) in the first two parts of this series of articles. Here we examine the mineralogy of the Purple Diopside Mound in detail.
