Garnierite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Name:
Named Jules Garnier who first discovered it 1864 in New Caledonia.
Generic name for a green nickel ore which has formed as a result of lateritic weathering of ultramafic rocks (serpentinite, dunite, peridotite).
Mostly a mixture of various Ni- and Ni-bearing magnesium layer silicates.
a. serpentine family: pecoraite, lizardite
b. smectite family: pimelite, kerolite
c. talc family: willemseite, talc
Occurs in many nickel laterite deposits in the world.
