About FelsőbányaiteHide

Al4(SO4)(OH)10 · 4H2O
Colourless, yellow, white; colourless in transmitted light.
Vitreous, Pearly
Specific Gravity:
Crystal System:
From the type locality, Felsöbánya, Hungary (now Baia Sprie, Romania).
Described by Kenngott in 1853, so the name Felsőbányaite has priority over "Basaluminite" which wasn't named until 1948, then was found to be the same species (Farkas & Pertlik, 1997).
May originate as a dehydration product of hydrobasaluminite.

Classification of FelsőbányaiteHide

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

7 : SULFATES (selenates, tellurates, chromates, molybdates, wolframates)
D : Sulfates (selenates, etc.) with additional anions, with H2O
D : With only medium-sized cations; sheets of edge-sharing octahedra

4 : (AB)4(XO4)Zq·xH2O

25 : Sulphates
6 : Sulphates of Al and Tl

Physical Properties of FelsőbányaiteHide

Vitreous, Pearly
Pearly on cleavage surfaces.
Colourless, yellow, white; colourless in transmitted light.
1½ on Mohs scale
On {010} and {100}; and possibly also on {001}.
2.33 g/cm3 (Measured)    2.20 g/cm3 (Calculated)
