The Uchucchacua Mine, Oyon Province, Peru is well-known for producing Alabandite in large octahedral
crystals, as well as crystal clusters of cubic
-octahedral combinations. Sharp octahedral crystals, often as floater
s, have recently been discovered in the Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania. In Australia, an interesting arborescent
form of Alabandite was found in a one-time occurrence at Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia.
Small microcrystals of Alabandite have come from the Garpenberg Norra Mine, Hedemora, Dalarna, Sweden; and Alabandite with contrasting Rhodochrosite
from Sacarîmb, Hunedoara Co., Romania. Massive
Alabandite often associated with Rhodochrosite
comes from Onavas, Sonora, Mexico.
