Pegmatites

Manganflurlite is a relatively new mineral, approved in 2017 and to date (July 2022) reported only from the type locality.

Localities

At the type locality, the Hagendorf South Pegmatite, Hagendorf, Waidhaus, Neustadt an der Waldnaab District, Upper Palatinate, Bavaria, Germany, manganflurlite occurs as a late-stage, relatively low-temperature, secondary hydrothermal mineral in a zoned granitic pegmatite. It has been found on two specimens of phosphophyllite as long, very thin, rectangular laths, up to 0.5 mm long and less than 10 μm thick. Associated minerals include phosphophyllite, hydroxylapatite, jahnsite-(CaMnFe), apatite, mitridatite and zinc-bearing rockbridgeite (EJM 31.1.127-134, HOM).
