Additional information / Summary

Das Originalmaterial von Eckermannit aus dem Naturhistorischen Museum in London (BM 1949.151) und das Originalmaterial analysiert von Törnebohm (1906) wurden beide als Fluoroleakeit identifiziert.

Eine Studie der Literatur zeigt, dass die einzige Analyse, die wirklich Eckermannit zeigt, die Probe AMNH 108401 aus dem Hpakant-Tawmaw Jade-Gangzug in Myanmar ist.
