Formula:
(Mg,Fe)2(Al,Ti)5O10
System:
Hexagonal
Colour:
Black
Hardness:
Name:
Named in 1916 by Axel Olof Gavelin in honor of Arvid Gustav Högbom [January 11, 1857 Vännäs, Västerbotten, Sweden - January 19, 1940 Uppsala Cathedral Parish, Uppsala County, Sweden], professor of mineralogy and geology, University of Uppsala, Sweden. Högbom collaborated with Nobel Price winner, Svante Arrhenius. Högbom worked on the origin and consequences of atmospheric carbon, the deposition of limestone and its affect on the carbon dioxide budget, and research into the formation of continental ice sheets.
Originally described from Ruoutevare, Kvikkjokk, Lappland, Sweden.

Synonymous with unspecified members of the Högbomite Group.
