Note on the mineral list: for "coeruleolactite" see references and information given for Planerite-Turquoise Series.

During 2010 to date, Dr. Jochen Schlüter has been working on several other phases, some of them still under investigation. A few more species must be added thanks to Dr. Schlüter's investigations:
Enargite (AED), cornubite (SEM-EDS), cornwallite (PDF), native silver with Cu traces (SEM), waxy-green chenevixite (SEM and PDF), antlerite (PDF), talmessite (SEM-EDS-PDF), clinoatacamite (SEM), chalcocite and sphalerite (SEM-EDS).

'Planerite-Turquoise Series'
Description: Originally reported to be coeruleolactite. All purported coeruleolactite examined by the authors of the 1998 report (Foord, E.E. & Taggart, J.E.) were largely Planerite, or Occasionally turquoise. Published analysis indicates that the vacany in the 'A' site is between 0.51-0.54 atom fraction, the balance in Cu-0.40 and Zn-0.06 to 0.09. It is suggested by this analysis that the turquoise structure likely cannot accomodate Ca in the 'A' site.
