Jixianite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Pb(W,Fe3+)2(O,OH)7
Colour:
red to brownish red
Lustre:
Resinous
Hardness:
3
Specific Gravity:
6.04
Crystal System:
Isometric
Name:
For the type locality at Ji Xian (= Ji County), China.
A variety of Elsmoreite Group

Jixianite (Liu 1979) is 'plumboelsmoreite'. In the absence of a crystal-structure study, it is not possible to know the dominant anion of the dominant valence at the Y site of jixianite.

Compare also hydrokenoelsmoreite (formerly ferritungstite, alumotungstite and elsmoreite).
