Hypersthene

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Mg,Fe)SiO3
Colour:
Greyish white
Lustre:
Vitreous, Silky
Hardness:
5½ - 6
An unnecessary name for a member of Enstatite-Ferrosilite series; name discredited by the CNMMN Pyroxene Subcommittee (1988).
Regarded as a synonym of Enstatite or Ferrosilite, but commonly regarded as a mid-way member between these two end-members. Most "Hypersthene" is ferroan enstatite.
