Klaprothite

Martin Heinrich Klaproth
Name:
There have been four attempts at naming a mineral for Martin Heinrich Klaproth [1743-1817], chemist and discoverer of uranium, zirconium, and cerium. Francis S. Beudant coined klaprothite in 1824 and renamed the mineral klaprothine in 1832. Both of these names were soon shown to refer to lazulite. Klaprothite was used by Thomas Petersen in 1868. In 1873, George Brush rejected the re-use of this mineral name by Petersen and called it klaprotholite. In 1947, this mineral was identified using non-type specimens to be a mixture of wittichenite and emplectite by Edward Nuffield. G. Springer and S. Demirsoy studied non-type material and suggested that klaprothite was a polymorph of emplectite, possibly cuprobismuthite.
