Abstract:
Herdade dos Pendões is an old iron and manganese mine located about 5 km north of the village of Odemira, southwest of Portugal. This small deposit also has copper and zinc ore, both supergenic and of no economic value. The copper paragenesis is the most exuberant, marked by the aesthetics and rarity of the species identified, some of them unpublished in Portugal. This is the case of zincolibethenite, which occurs here in the form of specimens that are among the best in the world. Other noteworthy minerals are santabarbaraite, chalcophanite and members of the jahnsite group.
