Summary: A zinc-rich helvine (genthelvite) has been found with bertrandite in miarolitic cavities in adamellite at Coire an Lochain in the Cairngorm Mountains. The genthelvite occurs as green or brown tetrahedral crystals of sp. gr 3·58±0·01. It is isotropic, n 1·742±0·003, a 8·133±0·005 Å. Bertrandite crystals are pale brown with sp. gr. 2·60±0·01; biaxial negative with 2V 75°, and α 1·590, β 1·603, γ 1·613, all ±0·003.
