Zincowoodwardite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
The Zn analogue of Woodwardite.
A hydrated basic sulfate with the Hydrotalcite structure. The formula was stated as a compound hydroxide-hydrated sulfate in the Lapis article, but is restated here to conform with the formula for Woodwardite.

Compare 'UM1985-07-OH:AlCuSZn' - close in terms of chemistry and PXRD.
