About HyalophaneHide

6 - 6½
Crystal System:
Member of:
Named in 1855 by Wolfgang Sartorius von Waltershausen from the Greek ύαλος for "glass" and φαίνεσθαι, "to appear," in allusion to the transparency of its crystals. Dana (1892) listed hyalophane under a separate species heading for a feldspar containing two atoms of potassium to one atom of barium. In 1895, Barium-dominant feldspar was defined by Stens Anders Hjalmar Sjögren. Hyalophane is now a variety of microcline or orthoclase which contains substantial barium.
A variety of Microcline

Feldspar Group. Celsian-Hyalophane Series, and the Hyalophane-Orthoclase Series (intermediate member).

Originally reported from Lengenbach Quarry, Im Feld (Imfeld; Feld; Fäld), Binn Valley, Wallis (Valais), Switzerland.

Classification of HyalophaneHide

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959), Questionable
