Gonnardite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Na,Ca)2(Si,Al)5O10 · 3H2O
System:
Orthorhombic
Hardness:
4 - 5
Name:
For French mineralogist Ferdinand Gonnard (1833-1923).
Zeolite Group. Natrolite Subgroup.
Most gonnardites have a disordered natrolite framework.

The compositions of and structural relationships between gonnardite and tetranatrolite remain controversial (Artioli and Galli 1999; Evans et al. 2000; Ross et al. 1992; Lee et al. 2006).


Classification of Gonnardite

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)
9.GA.05

9 : SILICATES (Germanates)
G : Tektosilicates with zeolitic H2O; zeolite family
A : Zeolites with T5O10 Units – The Fibrous Zeolites
77.1.5.7

77 : TECTOSILICATES Zeolites
1 : Zeolite group - True zeolites
16.10.5

16 : Silicates Containing Aluminum and other Metals
10 : Aluminosilicates of Ca and alkalis
