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 system comprises crystals having three axes, all of which are perpendicular to one another and all are found equal in lengths. Mineral Cliffordite is commonly found colored yellow or sulfur yellow in hand sample. The density measure of mineral Cliffordite is usually found 6.57 grams per cubic centimeters. The hardness measure of mineral Cliffordite is usually found 4 when evaluated using the Mohs scale method. Cliffordite is commonly found showing adamantine luster when evaluated in reflected light of polarizing microscopes used in the field of optical mineralogy. Mineral Cliffordite is commonly found leaving light yellow streak when rubbed on white porcelain streak plate. Mineral Cliffordite is found to have very strong radioactivity.
