About ManganberzeliiteHide

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 (as Mangan-Berzeliit) in 1894 by Lars Johan Igelström 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.
The mineral, which Igelström found in 1886 at Sjögruvan, Grythyttan, Örebro county, Sweden was already described by him as Pyrrhoarsénite in 1878 (Igelström 1878, 1894).
Berzeliite-Manganberzeliite Series. The manganese analogue of Berzeliite. Structurally related to Palenzonaite and to the Garnet Group of silicates.

Chemically very similar to caryinite.

Classification of ManganberzeliiteHide

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

A : Phosphates, etc. without additional anions, without H2O
C : With medium-sized and large cations
Dana 7th ed.:

2 : (AB)5(XO4)3

20 : Arsenates (also arsenates with phosphate, but without other anions)
8 : Arsenates of Mn

Physical Properties of ManganberzeliiteHide

Sub-Vitreous, Resinous, Greasy
Transparent, Translucent
Yellow-orange, yellowish red; colorless to orange in transmitted light.
Depth of red tint increases with increase in the Mn content.
White to orange
4½ - 5 on Mohs scale
None Observed
Irregular/Uneven, Sub-Conchoidal
4.28 - 4.46 g/cm3 (Measured)    4.38 g/cm3 (Calculated)
Measured values are for the middle of the series with berzeliite to the Mn end member.

Optical Data of ManganberzeliiteHide

RI values:
n = 1.770 - 1.781
Exhibits weak anomalous birefringence at times.
Isotropic minerals have no birefringence
Surface Relief:
Very High
