Name:
Named in 1906 by Eugen Hussak in honor of Claude Henri "Henrique" Gorceix (1842 Saint Denis-des-Murs, Haute Vienne, France - September 6, 1919 Paris, France), professor at Ecole des Mines in Paris, France. Invited to be the first Director of the School of Mines at Ouro Preto, Brazil (1874-1891). Buried at Oro Preto.


The Ba analogue of goyazite and crandallite.
