Short summary
A new locality of ardennite-(As) is described in Nežilovo, North Macedonia. This mineral grows in specific conditions, which makes it useful to reconstructing the conditions of rock formation. Phengite mica that was found also supports this investigation. This explanation results in a new proposal for mineral formula calculation of ardennite-group minerals and reviews the current ardennite-group end-members. This occurrence has developed through three metamorphic stages which are also described.
