Blue, greenish-blue, ...
Vitreous, Pearly
2½ - 3
Named in 1830 by August Breithaupt from the Greek κλίυειυ = "to incline" and κλαυ = "to break," in allusion to its oblique basal cleavage.
This page provides mineralogical data about Clinoclase.

Classification of Clinoclase

Valid - first described prior to 1959 (pre-IMA) - "Grandfathered"

B : Phosphates, etc., with additional anions, without H2O
E : With only medium-sized cations, (OH, etc.):RO4 > 2:1

3 : (AB)3(XO4)Zq

20 : Arsenates (also arsenates with phosphate, but without other anions)
1 : Arsenates of Cu URL:
