Name:
The name jeankempite honours Jean Petermann Kemp Zimmer (1917-2001), curator of the A. E. Seaman Mineral Museum from 1975-1986.
Tabular crystals, intergrown with guérinite. New structure type, slowly dehydrates via topotactic transition from guérinite, forming a structure partially related to ferrarisite.
