Hingganite-(Y)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Y,REE,Ca)2(□,Fe2+)Be2[SiO4]2(OH)2
System:
Monoclinic
Hardness:
6 - 7
Name:
After the type locality in the Greater Hinggan (Khingan) Mts, Qiqihaer Prefecture, Heilongjiang Province (Manchuria), China, plus the "-(Y)" suffix in allusion to the dominance of yttrium in the composition.

Gadolinite-Datolite Group. Y analogue of hingganite-(Yb) and hingganite-(Ce).
Difficult to distinguish from gadolinite-(Y).

Originally called yttroceberysite, later redefinition while applying Levinson rule (see references), renamed and IMA-approved in 2007.
