Dundasite

Dundasite is a rare lead aluminium carbonate mineral. The mineral is named after the type locality, Dundas, Tasmania, Australia. Dundasite was first discovered in the Adelaide Proprietary Mine in Australia, described by William Frederick Petterd in 1893. Chemical formula of Dundasite is PbAl2[(OH)2|CO3]2 • H2O. Dundasite is an unusually secondary mineral occurring in the oxidized zone of lead ore deposits. It commonly overgrows crocoite, cerussite sometimes with pyromorphite. It should be associated with cerussite, azurite, malachite, pyromorphite, mimetite, beudantite, duftite, crocoite, gibbsite, allophane and limonite. More info
