About WeileriteHide

Formula:
BaAl3(AsO4)(SO4)(OH)6
Name:
After the type locality, the Michael Mine at Weiler, near Lahr, Black Forest, Germany (but from where it may not in fact exist).
Originally considered a synonym of arsenogorceixite, because the exact sulphate content was unknown. It was redefined in 1987.
