Named for the Karibib District in Namibia where the type locality of the mineral occurs. Karibibite is a rare mineral that can be found in granite pegmatites in localities in, additionally, Japan, Morocco, Brazil, and Kazakhstan. Karibibite is paramagnetic, magnetic in the presence of externally applied magnetic fields. It can also fluoresce yellow under short-wave ultraviolet light.

Named after the type locality on Karnasurt Mountain in the Kola Peninsula in Russia. Karnasurtite is a rare mineal that can be found only at its type locality and one additional locality in Canada. It is found in replacement zones of microcline in pegmatite in alkalic massifs. Associated minerals include manganoan pectolite, natrolite, epididymite, polylithionite, and ussingite.

Named for the type locality at Shinkolobwe near Kasolo Hill in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Kasolite is an uncommon mineral that is found as an oxidation product of uraninite and can be found in localities in, additionally, Gabon, Germany, England, France, Australia, the United States, Canada, Mexico, and other minor localities. Kasolite is strongly radioactive.

Named for its localities, including type locality, in Kazakhstan. It is a rare mineral that can be found only in Kazakhstan and the United States. It occurs in veins and cementing beccias in weathered, vanadium-bearing black shale, as well as hydrothermally in gold deposits. Associated minerals include bokite, fervanite, schubnelite, hewettite, tyuyamunite, cacoxenite, variscite, and fluellite.
