Prior to the description of gartrellite (from Broken Hill, Australia) in 1988, this mineral was referred to as "Mineral TK" at Tsumeb.
Paragenetic and General Notes
Readily confused with zincgartrellite, tsumcorite, ferrilotharmeyerite and beaverite. Many of the specimens that were labelled as "Mineral TK" in the 1970s and 1980s have turned out to be gartrellite.
