Manjiroite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Na(Mn4+7Mn3+)O16
May contain K replacing Na.
Colour:
Brownish-gray
Lustre:
Resinous, Dull
Hardness:
7
Specific Gravity:
4.29
Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Name:
Named in 1967 by Matsuo Nambu and Katsutoshi Tanida in honor of Dr. Manjiro Watanabe [1891 Japan - 1980 Japan], mineralogist, economic geologist and Professor at Tohoku University, Japan.
Many manganese oxides are better identified using infra-red spectroscopy than by x-ray diffraction because of issues of crystal size, disorder, etc. (Potter and Rossman, 1979).
