Hollandite and cryptomelane occur as intergrown botryoidal masses with goethite in a quartz vein hosted by the Leinster Granite at Cloghleagh Mine, near Blessington, Co. Wicklow. Coronadite and romanèchite accompany pyromorphite in an oxidised Pb–Zn�quartz vein at Old Luganure Mine, Glendasan, also in the Leinster Granite. Quantitative analyses show the Cloghleagh material to consist of bands of varying K:Ba ratio ranging from cryptomelane (K > Ba) to hollandite (Ba > K), but neither approaches end member composition. The Luganure material is mostly coronadite of near Pb-end member composition, in some cases mixed, or intergrown with, romanèchite.
