System:MonoclinicColour:Colorless to white, very ...
Lustre:VitreousHardness:4 - 5
Member of:Zeolite Group
Name:Named for Carlo Giuseppe Gismondi (1762-1824), Italian mineralogist, who previously discovered "zeagonite" - a mixture of gismondine and phillipsite.
Synonym of:Gismondine-Ba, Gismondine-Ca


Zeolite Group.
"Gismondine-Ba" (proposed) has been found naturally as a secondary slag mineral on lead-rich slags. All other Gismondine is the calcium-rich member, for which "Gismondine-Ca" has been proposed.
