The chemical formula of mineral Canaphite is indicated by CaNa2P2O7•4(H2O). Mineral Canaphite is usually found present on a museum micromount specimen presumably from a trap-rock quarry. Canaphite was attributed to [Braens quarry,] Haledon [or Great Notch quarry, near Little Falls], Passaic Co., New Jersey, USA. Mineral Canaphite was named for Calcium, sodium, Natrium, and Phosphate in the composition. Mineral Canaphite 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 one another. However, both of which are commonly found perpendicular to the third axis. Mineral Canaphite is usually found with perfect cleavage exhibited under petrographic polarizing microscope. Mineral Canaphite is usually found colorless in hand sample. The density measure of mineral Canaphite is usually found 2.24 grams per cubic centimeters. Most crystals of mineral Canaphite are usually found showing transparent in appearance. The hardness measure of mineral Canaphite is usually found 2 when evaluated using the Mohs scale method. Mineral Canaphite is also commonly found with vitreous or glassy luster when evaluated in reflected light of polarizing microscope for mineralogists. Mineral Canaphite is most commonly found leaving white streak when rubbed on white porcelain streak plate. Mineral Canaphite is also commonly found showing biaxial negative figure when evaluated between crossed nicols of polarizing microscopes for mineralogists. Mineral Canaphite is also showing 0.0100 birefringence. Canaphite is found to be not radioactive.
