Locality type:Mine
Formula:Cu(UO2)2(AsO4)2 · 12H2O
Comments:Kingsbury reference. Kingsbury and Hartley (1960): A sample of this material, examined shortly after collection, was shown to be zeunerite, with n 1.608 +- 0.001 and giving X-ray powder-pattern spacings almost identical with those for synthetic hydrous zeunerite given by J.
