Israeli Miner Discovers New Mineral

Israeli exploration company Shefa Yamim has identified a new mineral while examining gemstones it had unearthed in the country.

The miner has named the material carmeltazite, as it discovered it on Israel’s Mount Carmel, and its major chemical components are titanium, aluminum and zirconium, Shefa Yamim said last week. The mineral exists inside the miner’s Carmel sapphires, a type of corundum the company has been producing in the north of Israel.

The International Mineralogical Association’s (IMA) Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification has approved the discovery and the name, Shefa Yamim added.
