Hibonite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Ca,Ce)(Al,Ti,Mg)12O19
System:
Hexagonal
Colour:
Black to brownisk black
Hardness:
7½ - 8
Name:
Named after Paul Hibon, a french prospector in Madagascar, who discovered the mineral in june 1953. He sent a parcel with some samples to Jean Behier for examination in the same year. Behier recognized it as a possible new mineral and gave it the working name "hibonite". He forwarded the sample to C. Guillemin, Labratoire de Minéralogie de la Sorbonne, in Paris, France to be further analyzed. It resulted in a description of the new mineral by Curien et al (1956).
