Formula:
~Cu2Ni2Sn3
Unique combination of elements. Found together with 'UM1985-05-E:CuSn' and a phase chemically and stoichiometrically corresponding to 'eta-bronze'; the minerals are found as fine-grained intergrowths and their aggregates are up to 0.3 mm in size. The aggregates were encountered within xenoliths of serpentinized garnet-spinel and spinel peridotites from a kimberlite. Other associated minerals include aluminium, copper, graphite, lead, tin, zinc, cuprostibite, moissanite, and stistaite.
