Name:
Named in 1915 by Arthur Francis Hallimond after the Basset Mine group, Cornwall, England, UK, from which the mineral was first described.
Isostructural with:
An uncommon secondary mineral occurring in the oxidized zones of uranium-bearing hydrothermal mineral deposits.

Crystal structure details (Dal Bo et al., 2016): (1) autunite-type sheets, [(UO2)(PO4)]-, built of corner-sharing UO6 square bipyramids and tetrahedral phosphate groups; (2) interlayer Fe(H2O)6 octahedra; (3) 2 isolated interlayer water molecules.
