Secondary uranospinite and novacekite occasionally are associated (Bultemann, 1957).
Bultemann (1957) described the uranyl arsenate novacekite from Vein 5 + 7, Bou Azzer, as small, straw-yellow to yellow tabular crystals, more weakly fluorescent in ultraviolet light than the associated pale yellow to yellow-green uranospinite (some of these specimens also showed associated brannerite).
