Johnsomervilleite

Friday, October 14th, 2011

The chemical composition of mineral Johnsomervilleite is indicated by the formula Na2Ca(Mg,Fe++,Mn)7(PO4)6. Johnsomervilleite is considered as an accessory mineral in podiform metamorphic segregations in kyanite-sillimanite-grade gneiss. This mineral is commonly found from its type of locality at Glen Cosaidh, Loch Quoich,, Inverness-shire, Scotland. Johnsomervilleite was named for John M. Somerville (1908-1978), who collected the first […]
