Short summary
In this work we report a new locality for the rare mineral hydroromarchite, Sn3O2(OH)2. It was found not in a submarine environment but in soil at the Saint James Church archaeological site in Creussen, Germany. A tin artefact (a tin button) was exposed to weathering in soil for about 300 years. We solved and refined its structure based on single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis.
