|Formula is also written Pb4O3SO4.H2O.|
White to colourless, lath-shaped (pseudo-orthorhombic) crystals up to 0.7 mm; asssociated with hydrocerussite; formed by anthropogenous processes (concrete used in mine) (Clara mine, Black Forest; Kolitsch, 2000). Subsequent finds show an association with plumbonacrite (Kolitsch, unpubl. data).
Also recently found in a Pb-rich slag from Austria (Kolitsch, data from 2012, in prep.).
Well-known as a synthetic phase (Kuzel, 1973; Steele et al., 1997).
