Hydrokenoralstonite is an alteration product of cryolite (Webmin). It occurs
in some granite pegmatites and
greisenized zones rich in fluorine, and also in a hydrothermal antimony deposit
in silicified limestone. Associated minerals include
prosopite and fluorite (HOM).
At Tom's Quarry, Kapunda, Mt Lofty Ranges, South Australia, hydrkenoralstonite has been identified on a goethite matrix on a single specimen (AJM 17.1.29).
At the type locality, the Ivigtut Cryolite deposit, Sermersooq, Greenland, Denmark, hydrokenoralstonite is associated with thomsenolite and cryolite (Mindat, AM24.566-576).
