Arsenolite

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The chemical formula of mineral Arsenolite is indicated by As2O3. Arsenolite is usually considered as a secondary mineral from As bearing rocks. It is most commonly found at its type of locality at Amargosa mine, San Bernardino Co., California, USA. This mineral was named for ARSENic in the composition. Arsenolite is known to crystallize in […]

Arsenogoyazite

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The chemical composition of mineral Arsenogoyazite is indicated by the formula  (Sr,Ca,Ba)Al3(AsO4,PO4)2(OH,F)5•(H2O). It is most commonly found at its type of locality at Clara mine, Oberwolfach, Black Forest, Germany. The mineral was named for the chemical composition and its relationship to goyazite. Mineral Arsenogoyazite is known to crystallize in the trigonal-hexagonal system of crystal formation. […]

Arsenoflorencite-(Nd)

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The chemical formula of mineral Arsenoflorencite-(Nd) is indicated by (Nd,La,Ce,Ba)(Al,Fe+++)3(AsO4,PO4)2(OH)6. This mineral was named as the arsenic analog of florencite and the dominant rare earth element, Neodymium.  Arsenoflorencite-(Nd) is known to crystallize in the trigonal system of crystal formation.

Arsenoclasite

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The chemical formula of mineral Arsenoclasite is indicated by Mn5(AsO4)2(OH)4. This mineral is actually considered as a rare fissure mineral in a metamorphosed Fe-Mn orebody at Langban, Sweden and in a sedimentary Fe-Mn deposit at Iron Monarch quarry, Australia. This mineral is usually found at its type of locality at Langban, Varmland, Sweden. It was […]

Arseniopleite

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The chemical formula of mineral Arseniopleite is indicated by (Ca,Na)(Na,Pb)Mn++(Mn++,Mg,Fe++)2(AsO4)3. Mineral Arseniopleite is a Mn-rich member of a series with caryinite. Arseniopleite is usually found at its type of locality at Sjo Mine, Grythytte Parish, Orebro, Sweden. Mineral Arseniopleite was named from the Latin for the element As, and Greek for ‘more’ because it adds […]

Arsenbrackebuschite

Friday, July 16th, 2010

The chemical formula of mineral Arsenbrackebuschite is indicated by Pb2(Fe++,Zn)(AsO4)2•(H2O). This mineral is usually found occuring in fissures in solomite breccia in the oxidized zone of a dolostone-hosted hydrothermal polymetallic ore deposit at Tsumeb, Namibia. It can be also found in a hydrothermal polymetallic barite-fluo rite deposit at Clara-mine, Germany. This mineral is usually found […]
