The singularity of the mineral assemblage found in the Cioclovina Cave, Romania, has been known at least since 1932, when J. Schadler described the new mineral ardealite, Ca2(HPO4)(SO4) · 4H2O, and mentioned this cave as the type locality. Extensive studies carried out during the last decade propeled the Cioclovina Cave among the top ten mineralogical caves in the world. The common cave-minerals calcite, aragonite, gypsum, apatite-(CaOH), brushite, monetite, crandallite, and taranakite (Constantinescu et al. 1999, Onac et al. 2002, Marincea & Dumitraş 2003, Dumitraş et al. 2004) are...
