From an internet source: The Criffel Hills and Kinharvie Burn itself were well known to the Scottish mineralogists of the 19th century. In particular, Jameson, Dudgeon and Heddle all published localities for sphene and allanite for which the area is famous. They were also aware of the occurrence of manganese minerals which were very difficult to analyse at that time. Modern analytical techniques have shown that the 'psilomelane' of Kinharvie Burn is romanèchite and this is only the third confirmed Scottish locality.
