Associated crystallized species may include wavellite, hewettite, tyuyamunite, torbernite, leucophosphite, anatase, tinticite, phosphofibrite, blue unknown #1 and strengitevariscite.
Although no large crystals have yet been found, the species is locally quite common at location 1 (5,400 and 5,375 benches), especially in association with blue unknown # 1, fluellite, tinticite, phosphofibrite and variscite.
Abundant associated minerals include fluellite crystals, leucophosphite spherules, tinticite crystals, hewettite needles, spongy tiemannite/corderoite intergrowths, and spherules of strengite/ variscite.
Spherical clusters to 20 microns of colorless, leafy plumbogummite crystals have been identified on specimens of phosphofibrite, tinticite, fluellite, variscite and anatase from location 1 on the 5,400 bench.
Tinticite is an uncommon mineral, first found as a cream-colored pulverulent material in a limestone cave near the Tintic Standard mine, Utah County, Utah.
Associated minerals occurring in crystals most commonly include fluellite, strengite/variscite and hewettite, although torbernite, leucophosphite, tinticite, tyuyamunite and anatase may also be present.
