About CornubiteHide

Formula:
Cu5(AsO4)2(OH)4
Colour:
Apple green, Light to dark green
Lustre:
Sub-Vitreous, Resinous, Waxy, Greasy
Hardness:
4
Specific Gravity:
4.64
Crystal System:
Triclinic
Name:
Named in 1958 by Gordon Frank Claringbull, Max H. Hey and Arthur Russell for Cornubia, the medieval Latin name for Cornwall.
Dimorph of:
The triclinic dimorph of Cornwallite.

There are weak hydrogen bonds in the structure. Raman polarizability is dependent on the orientation of arsenate tetrahedra, changing most along the Y axis (Janeczek et al., 2016).
