Formula:
C10H12N8O8
System:
Orthorhombic
Colour:
yellowish white
Lustre:
Earthy
Name:
Named after the European Falcon (Falco tinnunculus) since the mineral formed as a product of hot gases from a burning coal dump reacting with excrement from Falco tinnunculus.
A substance of anthropogenic origin (burning coal mine dumps). Current IMA regulations do not allow such substances to be validated as mineral species. The original proposal was therefore rejected, but the mineral and name were published nonetheless.
