Spodumene, including the varieties hiddenite and kunzite, as well as other lithium minerals such as lepidolite, petalite and amblygonite, have been reported from seven major pegmatites and pegmatite groups (DSGM, 1974), including the Mujane pegmatite (Sinkankas, 1981).
In triphylite, the hureaulite often forms prolate nodules having a spongy or reticulated texture, the cavities having been lined with microcrystal crusts of amblygonite, barbosalite, rockbridgeite, tavorite and vivianite.
