Grunerite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Emmanuel L. Gruner
Formula:
☐{Fe2+2}{Fe2+5}(Si8O22)(OH)2
Grunerite is defined as a monoclinic amphibole belong to the magnesium-iron-manganese amphibole subgroup.

It is defined with Fe2+ as the dominant element both in the B and C positions.
Colour:
nd
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
5 - 6
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named in 1853 by Gustav Adolph Kenngott in honor of Emmanuel Ludwig (Louis) Gruner [May 11, 1809 Ittigen, Switzerland - March 26, 1883 Beaucaire, France], professor of chemistry at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne and later chief mining engineer of Poitiers Department following as director of the School of Mines at Saint-Etienne. He became department head of metallurgy of Ecole des Mines in Paris and held several additional posts in government mining offices. Gruner was the first to chemically analyze the mineral which now bears his name.

Some early authors incorrectly spelled the name 'grünerite'.
Amphibole Group. Mg-Fe-Mn-Li Clino-Amphibole Subgroup.

Forms a series with cummingtonite.

The original description of the mineral in 1847 incorrectly determined it to be a pyroxene.

Varieties of Grunerite

Amosite

A fibrous variety of Grunerite. The name has also been used to refer to other asbestiform amphibole materials, such as Cummingtonite.

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asbestos Amosite (CAS No. 12172-73-5) is a trade name for the amphiboles belon...
