Improving Mindat.orgSukula pegmatite

I think that ferroalluaudite and varulite from the Sukula pegmatite are questionable. Alluaudite group minerals from Sukula have not been analyzed with modern methods.

Considering the references listed on the respective pages (Palache book and Wilke book, respectively), both are now changed to questionable.
