Jöns Jakob Berzelius
Yellow-orange, yellowish red; colorless to orange in transmitted light.
Sub-Vitreous, Resinous, Greasy
4½ - 5
Specific Gravity:
4.28 - 4.46
Crystal System:
Named in 1894 by Lars Johan Igelstrom for Jöns Jakob Berzelius, Swedish chemist [August 20, 1779 Linköping, Sweden - August 7, 1848 Stockholm, Sweden] and the prefix MANGAN-, in allusion to its being the manganese dominant member of the series with berzeliite. Berzelius is the father of analytical chemistry, inventor of chemical symbol notation. and discoverer of cerium, selenium, silicon, thorium, titanium, and zirconium, in addition to other elements that he gave to his students to work on.
Isostructural with:
Berzeliite-Manganberzeliite Series. The manganese analogue of Berzeliite. Structurally related to Palenzonaite and to the Garnet Group of silicates.
