Erionite

Member of:
Name:
Named in 1898 by Arthur Starr Eakle from the Greek εριον meaning wool in allusion to the "wooly" appearance of the type material. Erionite was first found at the Durkee Fire Opal Mine, Swayze Creek, Durkee, Baker Co., Oregon (Tschernich, 1992). In modern nomenclature, the original erionite was erionite-Na, but potassium was nearly equal to sodium.
This name now refers to a group of related minerals. Erionite minerals have the average chemical formula Ca3K2Na2[Al10Si26O72].30H2O (Z = 1), whereas the closely related offrétite has the average chemical formula CaKMg[Al5Si13O36].16H2O (Z = 1).

NOTE: The zeolite mineral species epitaxially overgrown on lévyne in all cases is identified as erionite (Passaglia et al., 1998).

Other Information

Health Risks:
Carcinogenic upon inhalation of its dust, due to its fibrous structure (IARC Monography 42: 225-239, 1987). The population of Cappadocia, Turkey, who live in houses built from erionite-bearing tuff, is reported to suffer from mesothelioma
