This article is in a pre-construction phase.
Someone is needed to work on this article which contains a few preliminary notes.

1. The localities need to be brought into conformity with mindat locality strings if necessary, reversed and made bold.
2. If image links appear below they need to be embedded in the article. If none are present the Mindat image bank needs to be searched for images of this mineral and the better ones and their localities need to be placed in the article.
3. The captions for the images need to be added.
4. The images need to be tweaked so that they look nice. This last bit is tedious and requires patience and some little artistry.

Kamchatka, Great Clefted Talbachik Eruption. “Atlasovite occurs as tabular crystals showing the forms {001}, {110}, {012}, and {014}; the crystals may consist predominately of atlasovite, or atlasovite may occur as zones within nabokoite. Atlasovite is dark brown, transparent, with a vitreous luster and light brown streak. …The mineral is a sublimate from the Great Clefted Talbachik eruption. …A sample (as zones in nabokoite) is preserved in the Fersman Mineralogical Museum of the USSR Academy of Sciences, Moscow.”1
1 American Mineralogist, Vol. 73, 1988 p. 924.
