This paper describes the mineralogy of the Visé area, Belgium. The descriptions are based on previously published data, as well as on new analyses performed on recently-collected material. Thirteen new minerals were found, which were absent from the previous investigations, among which a very rare phosphate mineral, mitryaevaite. Twenty-eight phosphate minerals are now reported in the area. Amorphous phosphates like richellite and delvauxite were examined into detail, thus showing the presence of late recrystallization processes.
