Cuprite
Formula: Cu2O
Reference: Lapis 15(7/8), 38-40 (1990)
Devilline ?
Formula: CaCu4(SO4)2(OH)6 · 3H2O
Description: Thomas Lühr got the specimen from an other collector, denoted as Devilline. But he doubts this declaration, because a visual analysis is not enough for identification, (Serpierite, Aurichalcite!). Azurite on the same Specimen is not so right suitable for a sulfate paragenesis.
