Member of:Chalcoalumite Group
Name:In allusion to its composition, containing copper (CHALC-) and ALUMinum.


Chalcoalumite Group.

Compare also the chemically similar woodwardite.

A chalcoalumite-related, Sb-bearing mineral is described by Kolitsch et al. (2012). Its X-ray powder diffraction pattern is somewhat similar to that of chalcoalumite. The mineral may contain Sb(OH)6 groups replacing SO4 groups in the anionic interlayer.

Crystallography of Chalcoalumite

Crystal System:Monoclinic
Class (H-M):2 - Sphenoidal
Space Group:P21
Cell Parameters:a = 17.09Å, b = 8.92Å, c = 10.22Å
β = 95.88°
Ratio:a:b:c = 1.916 : 1 : 1.146
Unit Cell Volume:V 1,549.77 ų (Calculated from Unit Cell)
Morphology:Occurs as rather porous, botryoidal crusts comprised of minute, matted fibers. Relatively large, lath-like crystals coat the outsides of the structures.
Twinning:Twinning of the laths sometimes apparent with the composition face parallel to the long edge and nearly normal to the flat face. These exhibit re-entrant angles, with symmetrical faces and extinction.
