1961 Mineralogical Journal  
A new mode of occurrence of cosalite from Japan and its mineralogicall properties are described. The mineral was identified by X-ray studies and chemical analyses. It occurs in a bedded type manganese deposit in a Palaeozoic formation. Acicular crystals were found in a vug of rhodonite with quartz or growing on the surface of quartz crystals. The cosalite is associated with such metallic minerals as gersdorffite, niccolite, huebnerite, scheelite, sphalerite, galena, pyrrhotite, uraninite, etc.,
