Clinozoisite

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Clinozoisite is indicated by Ca2Al3(SiO4)3(OH). Clinozoisite is commonly found occurring at metamorphic and contact metasomatic rocks. Clinozoisite was named after its resemblance to zoisite and the monoclinic crystal form. Mineral Clinozoisite is known to crystallize in the monoclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, the monoclinic system of crystal […]

Clinotyrolite

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

The chemical composition of mineral Clinotyrolite is indicated by the formula Ca2Cu9[(As,S)O4]4(OH)10•10(H2O). Mineral Clinotyrolite  is usually found forming in the oxidized zone of a copper deposit. Clinotyrolite is commonly found at its type of locality at Dongchuan copper mine, Yunnan Province, China. Clinotyrolite was named for the monoclinic symmetry and relationship to tyrolite. Mineral Clinotyrolite […]

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Clinoferrosilite  is indicated by (Fe++,Mg)2Si2O6. Clinoferrosilite commonly occurs as acicular crystals in lithophysae in obsidian at Lake Naivasha, Kenya. Clinoferrosilite is known to be dimorphous with ferrosilite and usually forms a series with clinoenstatite. Clinoferrosilite is usually found from near Lake Naivasha, Rift Valley, Kenya. Mineral Clinoferrosilite was named for […]

Cliffordite

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

The chemical formula of mineral Cliffordite is indicated by UTe3O9. This mineral was named for Clifford Frondel (1907-2002), one of the founders of Mineralogical Society of America and one of the authors of Dana’s Mineralogy, 7th edition. Cliffordite is known to crystallize in the isometric system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, this isometric crystal […]
