For the locality
A discredited mineral, originally reported from Mount Uludağ, Bursa Province, Marmara Region, Turkey.

Needs a crystal-structure determination (Moëlo et al., 2008).

Classification of Bursaite

Discredited 2006
Explanation of status:
Mixture of two sulphosalts (Can. Mineral 44 (2006) 1557). Some samples appear to be identical with Ag-rich lillianite.
