Columbite-(Fe)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
FeNb2O6
Colour:
Black to brownish black
Lustre:
Vitreous, Sub-Metallic
Hardness:
6
Specific Gravity:
5.2 - 6.65
Crystal System:
Orthorhombic
Member of:
Name:
Named in 1801 by Charles Hatchett (1765-1847) from a specimen collected in the mid-17th century in a place called Nautneague (now regarded as Haddam, Connecticut, USA). The specimen was from the mineral collection of John Winthrop (1606–1676), governor of Connecticut and was given to Hans Sloane by John Winthrop (1681–1747) who was the grandson of the governor with the same name. From the type specimen, Hatchett named the new element columbium (now called niobium). The current species, columbite-(Fe) retains the old root name and has the suffix -(Fe) to indicate the dominance of iron in the species. Columbite was the second species named from the USA, after celestine (q.v.)
Columbite-(Fe)-Tantalite-(Fe) Series and the Columbite-(Fe)-Columbite-(Mn) Series.
Formerly known as columbite and ferrocolumbite.

Compare also ixiolite.
