Member of:Autunite Group
Name:Named in 1932 by Jacques Thoreau and Johannes F. Vaes in honor of canon Achille Salée [September 6, 1883 Spa, Belgium - March 3, 1932 Astrida, Belgium], Professor at Universitè Catholique de Louvain, Louvain, Belgium. Salée was a geologist and systematic paleontologist. He authored a geologic map of Rwanda. A river in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is named for him as is a street in his home town of Spa.


Autunite Group.

A secondary mineral occurring in the oxidized zones of uranium-bearing polymetallic hydrothermal, and sedimentary, mineral deposits.

Crystallography of Saléeite

Crystal System:Monoclinic
Class (H-M):2/m - Prismatic
Space Group:P21/b
Cell Parameters:a = 6.951(3) Å, b = 19.947(8) Å, c = 9.896(4) Å
β = 135.17(2)°
Ratio:a:b:c = 0.348 : 1 : 0.496
Unit Cell Volume:V 967.34 ų (Calculated from Unit Cell)
Z:2
Morphology:Saleeite is pseudotetragonal, the last few water molecules distort the structure. Forms square plates, composite, flattened on {001}, and exhibiting {001}, {100}, {120}, and {012}. Subparallel lamellar aggregates common.
Comment:P21/n The structure consists of UO2PO4 sheets between which are located Mg2+ ions and water molecules. The Mg2+ ions are octahedrally coordinated to 6 of the 10 interlayer waters, but the last 4 water molecules are not bound to Mg.
