|Comments:||Kingsbury reference. Cooper & Stanley (1990): "The first (and only) British occurrence (Kingsbury & Hartley, 1955). The mineral was found in specimens from the dumps of the eastern level as small (< 1.5mm), dark olive-green bladed crystals on a yellowish-green crystalline mineral (which 'gives [an x-ray powder] pattern and spacings very close to those of the well-known pale blue Cumberland plumbogummite' op. cit.: 724.) It was found in cavities in granophyre presumed to be from the vein wall. Only a few specimens were obtained (Kingsbury and Russell Collections, BM(NH)) and, despite the exertions of a generation of collectors, none has been found since."|
