Symplesite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Fe32+(AsO4)2 · 8H2O
System:
Triclinic
Colour:
Light green, greenish ...
Hardness:
Name:
Named by Johan Friedrich August Breithaupt in 1837 from the Greek 'ουν' and 'πλησιαζειν' meaning 'to bring together' because of its relationship with other minerals.
Dimorph of:
Symplesite Group.
May be intergrown with parasymplesite.

The Fe2+ may oxidise to a significant degree to Fe3+ (see ferrisymplesite) with an accompanying change in colour and optical properties analogous to Vivianite.

Classification of Symplesite

Valid - first described prior to 1959 (pre-IMA) - "Grandfathered"
8.CE.45

8 : PHOSPHATES, ARSENATES, VANADATES
C : Phosphates without additional anions, with H2O
E : With only medium-sized cations, RO4:H2O about 1:2.5
40.3.8.1

40 : HYDRATED NORMAL PHOSPHATES,ARSENATES AND VANADATES
3 : A3(XO4)2·xH2O
20.9.6

20 : Arsenates (also arsenates with phosphate, but without other anions)
9 : Arsenates of Fe
