Member of:Beudantite Group > Alunite Supergroup
Name:Named in 1869 by Gilbert-Joseph Adam after the first occurrence at County Cork, Ireland.


The phosphate analogue of beudantite with which a complete solid-solution range exists. The ferric iron analogue of hinsdalite. Also forms a solid solution with kintoreite.

An uncommon, low-temperature, secondary mineral occurring in the oxidised zones of hydrothermal base-metal deposits.
