Flag of Nigeria
Formula:
(Zn,Al,Mg)2(Al,Sn)6O11(OH)
ZnSn2Al12O22(OH)2 according to the IMA proposal
Crystal System:
Trigonal
Name:
The Zn-dominant mineral of the nigerite group and the 2N1S polysome. The root name is for Nigeria, and the suffix -2N1S indicates the polysome.
Discussed as a potential Zn-dominant member of the Nigerite Group by Armbruster (2002).
