Glaucophane

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
◻[Na2][Mg3Al2]Si8O22(OH)2
Glaucophane is defined as a member of the glaucophane group with Mg>Fe2+ in the C2+ position and (OH) in the W position.
Colour:
Grey to lavender-blue.
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
5 - 6
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
From the Greek γλαυκός (glaukos) for "sky-blue" and φαίνεσθαι (phainestai) "to appear", in allusion to its colour.
The Mg analogue of ferro-glaucophane.
