The chemical formula of mineral Baileychlore is indicated by (Zn,Al,[ ])3[Fe++2Al][Si3AlO10](OH)8. Mineral Baileychlore is most commonly found at Red Dome deposit, Mungana, 15 km WNW of Chillagoe, Lynd County, Queensland, Australia. Mineral Baileychlore was named for Sturges W. Bailey (1919-), mineralogist University of Wisconsin. This mineral is known to crystallize in the triclinic system of crystal formation. In optical mineralogy, this triclinic crystal system commonly comprises crystals having three axes, of which all are unequal in length and are positioned oblique to one another.

Mineral Baileychlore is most commonly found showing perfect cleavage when evaluated with the aid of petrographic polarizing light microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Mineral Baileychlore is usually found colored yellow green and dark green in hand sample. The specific gravity measure of mineral Baileychlore is usually found 3.18 grams per cubic centimeters. Most crystals of mineral Baileychlore are found transparent in appearance. The hardness measure of mineral Baileychlore when it is evaluated using the Mohs scale method is usually found ranging from 2.5 or 3. Mineral Baileychlore is usually found showing pearly luster when viewed in reflected light of petrographic polarizing microscope. Mineral Baileychlore is usually found leaving a light green streak when rubbed on white porcelain streak plate. Mineral Baileychlore is usually found showing biaxial figure when evaluated between crossed nicols of polarized microscope used in the field of optical mineralogy. Baileychlore is also commonly found showing 0.0320 birefringence. Mineral Baileychlore is known to be pleochroic commonly showing green and yellow green. Baileychlore is a non-radioactive mineral as evaluated.
