About Voltaite GroupHide

A group of complex, cubic or tetragonal-pseudocubic metal sulphate hydrates.

A large number of synthetic members is known since the 1930s; they are either cubic or pseudocubic.
Synthetic crystals often contain a cubic core and tetragonal outer sectors (Majzlan et al., 2013).
