Plancheite

Plancheite is a hydrated copper silicate that is so closely related to Shattuckite in appearance and chemical composition that they are often mistaken. Plancheite is found in copper deposits alongside Dioptase, Chrysocolla, and Malachite.

Plancheite was first described by A. Lacroix from Mindouli. Named after a French explorer, Mr. Planche, who supplied the samples to Lacroix.361AA605-161A-4165-8BE7-2BA237006998
