Name:
Named by William Haidinger in 1845 in honour of František Xaver Maximilian Zippe (1791-1863), Austrian mineralogist.
NOTE: Many of the specimens that are labeled "zippeite" are actually natrozippeite (the sodium-dominant member of the group), especially those from sedimentary deposits.

Structurally related to redcanyonite.
