Federico Millosevich
Formula:
(Al,Fe)2(SO4)3
Colour:
Red, Violet-blue.
Lustre:
Vitreous
Crystal System:
Trigonal
Name:
Named in 1913 by Ugo Panichi in honor of Federico Millosevich (10 January 1875, Venice – 9 November 1942, Rome, Italy), mineralogist, University of Rome.
Compare also sulfalumite. The Al analogue of mikasaite, millosevichite may be treated as a fully aluminous analogue (or counterpart) of koryakite.

The hydrated counterparts of millosevichite include UM1976-22-SO:AlFeH, Unnamed (Al Sulphate-Hydrate), 'meta-alunogen', and alunogen.
