|Comments:||Cooper & Stanley (1990): "Specimens labelled conichalcite are preserved in the Russell and Kingsbury Collections, BM(NH), but Kingsbury seems later to have considered the mineral to be a calcian duftite ('calcioduftite') although the X-ray powder pattern was 'close to (but by no means identical with) that of conichalcite (Kingsbury & Hartley, MS). Conichalcite has been found intimately associated with bayldonite forming a dark green crystalline crust on quartz (det. BM(NH): XRD, B. Young, pers. comm.)."|
