Jahnsite-(CaFeFe)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Richard H. Jahns
Formula:
{Ca}{Fe2+}{Fe2+2}{Fe3+2}(PO4)4(OH)2 · 8H2O
Colour:
brown
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
4
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Analogue of other jahnsite group species, so no other name would be acceptable.

The group name jahnsite is in honor of Richard Henry Jahns (10 March 1915, Los Angeles, California, USA - 31 December 1983, Palo Alto, California, USA), mineralogist and pegmatite expert, Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, USA.
Jahnsite Subgroup.

Originally described from Oshibedani, Kobe city, Hyogo prefecture, Kinki region, Honshu Island, Japan.
