Tree of Eisenstein triples

We know that the primitive Pythagorean triples can be generated using (3,4,5) as a seed and multiplied with three matrices given in 'Tree of Pythagorean triples' wiki page.

I was wondering why is such a formulation not possible for Eisenstein triples? Does such matrices exist with a seed or is it impossible at all?

Any thoughts or ideas on this??

Good question, but I suspect the answer to this is running very close to giving away a potential solution to at least one of the problems in Project Euler, so this is probably not the appropriate forum. Sorry.
