Anthropogenic lead oxide hydroxide nitrate (formed on late medieval mine dumps due to the use of nitrate explosives).
Forms pseudo-octahedral colourless, white to pale yellowish crystals.
Often associated with Unnamed (Pb2(OH)3(NO3)).
According to Kolitsch and Tillmanns (2003), this phase is identical with "Pb6O3(OH)4(NO3)2" and "Pb3(OH)5(NO3)" reported in the literature.
