Unique combination of elements.

Chanabayaite is a transformational mineral species formed as a result of leaching Na and one third of Cl and partial dehydration of the protophase Na2Cu2Cl3(N3C2H2)2(NH3)2∙4H2O. The later, now known as triazolite, is structurally related.

Both chanabayaite and its precursor are first known minerals with triazolate anion.
