Bokite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical composition of mineral Bokite is indicated by the formula (Al,Fe+++)1.3(V++++,Fe)8O20•4.7(H2O) . Bokite is usually found at its type of locality at Kurumsak area, Kazakhstan. This mineral was named for Ivan I. Bok, (1898-), Kazakh mineralogist. Bokite is known to crystallize in the monoclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, the monoclinic system […]

Bohdanowiczite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Bohdanowiczite is indicated by AgBiSe2. Bohdanowiczite is usually found forming in fluorite and quartz in a strongly brecciated zone formed in crystalline limestone adjacent to magnetite-bearing skarns. Bohdanowiczite is also commonly found at its type of locality at Kletna deposit, Sudetes Mountains, Poland. This mineral was named for Karol Bohdanovicz […]

Bogvadite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Bogvadite is indicated by Na2SrBa2Al4F20. Bogvadite is usually found at its type of locality at Ivigtut, Greenland. This mineral was named for Richard Bogvad (1952-), Danish, former chief geologist of the cryolite mining company. Bogvadite is known to crystallize in the orthorhombic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, this […]

Boggsite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical composition of mineral Boggsite is indicated by the formula NaCa2(Al5Si19O48)•17(H2O). Boggsite is usually found forming in vesicles in one of a series of porphyritic basalt flows intercalated with pyroclastics and minor sediments. This mineral is usually found at its type of locality along Goble Creek, near Goble, Columbia Co., Oregon, USA. Boggsite was […]

Boggildite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Boggildite is indicated by Sr2Na2Al2(PO4)F9. Boggildite is known to crystallize in the monoclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, the monoclinic system of crystal formation comprises crystals having three axes of unequal lengths. Two of which are usually found in a position that is oblique or not perpendicular to […]

Bogdanovite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Bogdanovite is indicated by (Au,Te,Pb)3(Cu,Fe). Bogdanovite is usually found forming at oxidation zone of Au-Te deposits. Mineral Bogdanovite is most commonly found at its type of locality at Dalnii Vostok, Kazakhstan. This mineral was named for Aleksei A. Bogdanov (1907-1971), Russian geologist. Bogdanovite is known to crystallize in the isometric […]

Bobtraillite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical composition of mineral Bobtraillite is indicated by the formula (Na,Ca)13Sr11(Zr,Y,Nb)14Si42B6O132(OH)12•12H2O. Found in igneous breccias and nepheline syenite pegmatites. Bobtraillite is commonly found at its type of locality at Poudrette quarry, Mont Saint-Hilaire. Bobtraillite was named for Robert (Bob) James Traill (1921-), mineralogist, former head of the mineralogy section of the Geological Survey of […]

Bobkingite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Bobkingite is indicated Cu5Cl2(OH)8(H2O)2. Bobkingite commonly occurs on crusts of malachite and azurite that overlie massive cuprite in oxidized waste material consisting of quarried diorite with copper inclusions. This mineral Bobkingite is usually found similar to atacamite in structure. Bobkingite is most commonly found at its type of locality at […]

Bobjonesite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Bobjonesite is indicated by VO(SO4)(H2O)3. Bobjonesite is commonly found forming at silicified log in the Triassic Chinle Formation (Shinarump Conglomerate Member). This mineral usually found unstable in all but the driest atmosphere. Bobjonesite is commonly found its type of locality at the Temple Mountain, Emery County, Utah, USA. Bobjonesite was […]

Bobierrite

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Bobierrite is indicated by Mg3(PO4)2•8(H2O). Bobierrite is usually formed from the chemical alteration of guano deposits (Mejillones, Chile; Imperial Canyon lava tubes, Kenya), and an elephant tusk (Edgerton, Minnesota, USA). This mineral was named in honor of Pierre Adolphe Bobierre (1823-1881), French agricultural chemist, who first described the mineral. Bobierrite […]
