Leucophosphite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
KFe23+(PO4)2(OH) · 2H2O
System:
Monoclinic
Colour:
White to greenish, buff, ...
Hardness:
Name:
Named in 1932 by Edward Sydney Simpson from the Greek word "LEUCO" meaning "white" and the prefix PHOSPHate, in allusion to its colour and composition as a phosphate.
Isostructural with:
Leucophosphite Group.
The Fe3+ analogue of tinsleyite.

Originally phosphate formed by the action of solutions derived from bird or bat guano upon serpentine (TL), or earlier iron-bearing minerals, also formed from the hydrothermal alteration of earlier iron-bearing phosphates in granite pegmatites.

Classification of Leucophosphite
