Summary:These three copper chloride hydroxides occur in fractures in pebbles of hydrothermally brecciated Ordovician siltstone, containing quartz-chalcopyrite-bornite veins. In common with other examples of these minerals, they appear to have formed by supergene oxidation of primary Cu and Pb sulphides in the presence of sea-water. [R.A.H.]
