Note on Pickeringite from Missouri, (in a letter to one of the editors, from G. C. Broadhead, State Geologist of Missouri, dated St. Louis, Mo., March 3, 1874.) - The Pickeringite occurs in efflorescences on sandstone of the Lower Coal-measures in Barton County, Mo. An analysis by the chemist of the Geological Survey, Mr. R. Chauvenet, gives the following for its composition: Sulphuric acid 33.77, alumina 16.58, magnesia 2.92, water 44.64 = 99.91. This nearly corresponds with the composition given for “Pickeringite” on page 653 of Dana’s Mineralogy.
