Name:
Named in 1827 by Edward Turner to honour Wilhelm Karl von Haidinger [February 5, 1795 in Vienna, Austria – March 19, 1871 in Dornbach, Austria]. Haidinger was a pupil of Friedrich Mohs and translated some of his works. Director of the Haidinger porcelain factory at Elbogen, Austria. Later, Councellor of Mines in Vienna and director of the Imperial geological Institute. He was a prolific researcher and author.
