Hureaulite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Mn,Fe)5(PO4)2(HPO4)2 · 4H2O
System:
Monoclinic
Colour:
Commonly pink to ...
Hardness:
5
Name:
Named by François Alluaud II in 1825 for the type locality, the village of Hureaux, Haute Vienne Department, Limousin, France. A diacritical mark has been used in the name, "huréaulite", but the town does not use a diacritical mark in its name. In 1912, Waldemar Schaller named a red mineral from Pala, California, USA, "palaite", but the mineral has proved to be only a color variety of hureaulite. Baldaufite was named in 1925 by Franz Mullbauer. De Jesus (1933) named pseudopalaite.
Hureaulite Group.

Originally sometimes called huréaulite; spelling re-defined by Burke (2008).
