Polymignite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Ca,Fe,Y,Th)(Nb,Ti,Ta,Zr)O4
System:
Orthorhombic
A variety of Zirconolite

Described as a new mineral by Berzelius (1824) from Stavern, Vestfold, Norway. Later shown to be identical with zirconolite described in 1956. In spite of its priority and widely use in the literature, polymignite is now considered a metamict variety of zirconolite.

Classification of Polymignite

Discredited 1989
Explanation of status:
Metamict zirconolite.
4/X.0-0

4 : Oxides & Hydroxides
X : Unclassified oxides
