Notes:
Once exposed it dehydrates and crumbles to metahohmannite.

Decomposed by hot water but virtually insoluble in cold water. Readily soluble in HCl.
Health Risks:
No information on health risks for this material has been entered into the database. You should always treat mineral specimens with care.
