About EdingtoniteHide

Ba[Al2Si3O10] · 4H2O
4 - 5
Member of:
For Scottish mineral collector Thomas Edington (1783-1841)
Zeolite Group. Edingtonite Subgroup.

Most edingtonites are orthorhombic (space group P212121), while some are tetragonal (space group P-421m) and called 'tetraedingtonite'. Orthorhombic edingtonites have (Si,Al) order, while tetragonal edingtonites are characterised by (Si,Al) disorder (symmetry increase due to disorder).

Classification of EdingtoniteHide

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)

9 : SILICATES (Germanates)
G : Tektosilicates with zeolitic H2O; zeolite family
A : Zeolites with T5O10 Units – The Fibrous Zeolites

1 : Zeolite group - True zeolites

16 : Silicates Containing Aluminum and other Metals
12 : Aluminosilicates of Sr, Ba and Zn
