About JudditeHide

John Wesley Judd
Juddite was named by Lewis Leigh Fermor in 1908 in honor of John Wesley Judd [February 18, 1840 – March 3, 1916]. Judd was a field geologist and petrologist for the British Geological Survey and later professor of geology at the Imperial (Royal) College in London, England.
Red Mn-bearing amphibole with variable compositions. Juddite was originally defined (1908) as a manganiferous amphibole with intense pleochroism (carmine, blue or green, and orange), and with the optic axial plane is perpendicular to the plane of symmetry.

Leake (1978) set juddite as a variety of arfvedsonite based on data provided by Bilgrami(1955). Later reviews of juddite analyses has shown a wide variation of compositions in the sodioum and sodium-calcium amphibole subgroups. Leakeite group and dellaventuraite group amphiboles was first described from juddite-like material
