Index of occurence in Slovakia:

    1. EXCEPTIONAL      1 - 2 localities
   2. RARE    
                  3 - 6 localities
         7 - 15 localities
   4. ABUDANT

Identification rating of mineral in Slovakia:

 1. WELL IDENTIFIED - mostly combination at least 2 most distinguished analytical methods (X -ray diffraction and electron microprobe)

2. PARTIALLY-INDENTIFIED - mineral mostly analyzed, but for well identification is need to make another analyses

3. UNDERIDENTIFIED - mineral mostly identified only visual, often very problematic or fictive

Index of occurence in Slovakia: 1                                           Identification rating of mineral in Slovakia: 1
Type locality: Hudson Bay mine, Timiskaming district, Cobalt, Ontario, Kanada (Walker & Pearsons, 1924)
Oldest description from Slovakia area: Vyšná Boca (Ozdín & Chovan, 1999)
Localities in Slovak Republic (1) and identification rating (in parenthesis): Vyšná Boca - Rovienky (1)
Size: macroscopic
Largest crystal from Slovakia area: - (amorphous)
Botryoidal aggregate of ferrisymplesite from Vyšná Boca; field of view ~ 5 mm (Photo D. Ozdín)  
Notes: Ferrisymplesite was identified on the basis EDS spectrum and X-ray powder diffraction which suggest to its amorphous state.
