Formula:
CaCu4(SO4)2(OH)6 · 3H2O
Colour:
Blue-green
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Member of:
Dimorph of:
Anthropogenic phase found in slag.
The crystal structure (Kolitsch et al., 2013) is very similar to that of devilline.

The phase has now (2014) also been found in a natural environment, a mine dump in Austria (U. Kolitsch, to be published).
