About Unnamed (Pb-Cu Arsenite-Chloride)Hide

Formula:
Pb6Cu(AsO3)2Cl7
Colour:
Colourless
Crystal System:
Trigonal
Anthropogenic phase found in slag. May be associated with Unnamed (Pb Arsenite Chloride) [Pb5(AsO3)Cl7].
The crystal structure (Kolitsch et al., 2014; Zubkova et al., 2015) shows a very close relation to that of its synthetic dimorph which was structurally characterised by Pertlik (1986).

Visually similar to hydrocerussite and the Unnamed (Hydrocerussite- and Plumbonacrite-related phase).
