System:IsometricColour:Yellowish to reddish ...
Hardness:5½ - 6½
Member of:Pyrochlore Supergroup
Name:
Named in 1841 by Augustin Alexis Damour in honor of Jean Baptiste Louis Romé de L'Isle [August 26, 1736 Gray, Haute-Saône, France - July 3, 1790 Paris, France], the "father of crystallography". He was first an officer in the French Army and he developed the science of crystallography while he was a private curator for wealthy collectors of coins, minerals, etc.


The nomenclature was recently revised by Atencio et al. (2010); see also Christy & Atencio (2013).

Optical Data of Roméite Group

Type:Isotropic
RI values: n = 1.817 - 1.854
Maximum Birefringence:δ = 0.000 - Isotropic minerals have no birefringence
