Summary: The third occurrence of stokesite was discovered in a desilicated pegmatite at Věžná, Western Moravia. In this locality, stokesite accompanies columbite, cassiterite, and stibian pyrochlore-microlite, in a miarolitic cavity of albite. The X-ray data and the optical properties of the Věžná stokesite agree well with those observed by previous authors.
