Other Minerals Anhydrite is present throughout the Saline Unit, generally as thin laminar beds alternating with anhydrite-magnesite (or other minerals), but also as enterolithic "nodules" (intestine-like elongated clusters) of various sizes and shapes. It is usually found as euhedral tabular crystals, but many odd forms are also present, such as platy or "bow tie" in the deepest zones. Halite usually occurs as thin (a few centimeters thick) continuous beds interlayered with other thin beds. The crystal faces may be parallel to the substrate or have upward-facing chevron structures, and the crystals usually have abundant fluid and/or solid inclusions.

In Bosnia and Herzegovinia, the lacustrine halite deposit of Tuzla contains beds of each of the sulfate minerals thenardite, mirabihte, and glauberite, and much smaller amounts of nahcoUte (NaHCOa), bradleite (MgNa3C03P04), and northupite (MgNa2(C03)2-NaCl). There are five series of hafite beds, numbered from 1 to 5 from the top downwards, with most of the sulfates in beds 2, 3a, and 3b. The thenardite occurs in the form of yellow to dark brown platy crystals in association with mirabihte, hahte, and some northupite within the 3a and 3b halite series.

16). 2. It indicates the presence of sodium carbonate, but since gypsum and glauberite are comparatively soluble, calcium carbonate would immediately precipitate if both calcium and carbonate ions were present in the crystallizing solution. An error in the analyses is further indicated by the low values for the presumed fairly pure crystals of each mineral that were analyzed. The glauberite reserves are estimated to be 190 million mt, containing about 65 million mt of Na2S04 (Alkim, 1999). UNITED STATES Arizona: Camp Verde The Camp Verde thenardite (Na2S04) deposit in Yavapai county is located about 2 km west of the town of Camp Verde (an old mihtary post) in the Verde River valley, outcropping along the side of Copper Canyon (Fig.
