Hingganite-(Yb)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Yb,Y,REE)2□Be2[SiO4]2(OH)2
Hardness:
6 - 7
Name:
In allusion to its composition, being the Yb-analogue of the older species hingganite-(Y).
The Yb analogue of Hingganite-(Y), Hingganite-(Ce), and hingganite-(Nd). One of a very few Yb-dominant approved minerals, the others being keiviite-(Yb), samarskite-(Yb), xenotime-(Yb) and the (rather not approved) hellandite-(Yb). Compare also ytterbium.
