System:OrthorhombicColour:Dark green, Yellow ...
Hardness:1 - 2
Name:For Carl W. Correns (1893-1980), professor of mineralogy and petrography in the University of Göttingen, Germany.


A 1:1 regular interstratification of a trioctahedral chlorite with either a trioctahedral vermiculite (low layer charge corrensite, LLC) or a trioctahedral smectite (high layer charge corrensite, HLC).

Classification of Corrensite

IMA status:Valid - first described prior to 1959 (pre-IMA) - "Grandfathered" 1954
Explanation of status:Corrensite consists of two different structural sequences and should be divided into two species.

Type Occurrence of Corrensite

Type Locality:Zaisersweiher, Maulbronn, Kraichgau, Baden-Württemberg, Germany
General Appearance of Type Material:Dense fine-grained mixtures, also thin dustings on late minerals in cavities
Year of Discovery:1954
Geological Setting of type material:Found in pelitic sediments, also in evaporites, marbles, also late stage hydrothermal coatings in basalts, etc. Corrensite may persist through chlorite grade metamorphism.

Physical Properties of Corrensite

Lustre:Waxy, Dull, Earthy
Diaphaneity (Transparency):Translucent
Comment:Low luster due to fine-grained particles
Colour:Dark green, Yellow green,Blackish green, Brown, Light golden brown, gray white
Streak:White to light gray
Hardness (Mohs):1 - 2
Tenacity:Flexible
Cleavage:Perfect
{001} perfect, but rarely visible on casual inspection due to small particle size.
Fracture:Micaceous

Crystallography of Corrensite

Crystal System:Orthorhombic
Cell Parameters:a = 5.337Å, b = 9.215Å, c = 29.0Å
Ratio:a:b:c = 0.579 : 1 : 3.147
Unit Cell Volume:V 1,426.23 ų (Calculated from Unit Cell)
Morphology:Fine-grained, occasionally as barely visible flakes.
Comment:Various unit cells have been proposed including hexagonal, also monoclinic

Comments:LLC d-values (31-794). Basal d-values vary with type of corrensite. LLC usually is 28-29 Angstroms, but HLC ranges up to 32 Angstroms. LLC and HLC corrensite may be present in mixtures, but samples may contain only one type. LLC corrensite is uncommon compared to HLC corrensite. Intercalation with glycerol or ethylene glycol increases HLC basal spacing to 32 Angstroms, while LLC corrensite does not expand.

Optical Data of Corrensite

Type:Biaxial (-)
RI values: nα = 1.560 - 1.585 nβ = 1.582 - 1.612 nγ = 1.582 - 1.612
Birefringence:May be 0.01-0.03, but 0.00 reported
Maximum Birefringence:δ = 0.022 - 0.027

Chart shows birefringence interference colour range (at 30µm thickness) and does not take into account mineral colouration.
Surface Relief:Moderate
Dispersion:r < v strong
