Montebrasite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
LiAl(PO4)(OH)
Colour:
White, colorless, gray white, very pale brown, pale pink, pale yellow
Lustre:
Sub-Vitreous, Resinous, Greasy, Pearly
Hardness:
5½ - 6
Specific Gravity:
2.98 - 3.04
Crystal System:
Triclinic
Name:
Named by Alfred Des Cloizeaux in 1871 for the type locality, the Montebras Mine, Montebras-en-Soumans, Boussac, Creuse, Limousin, France. [Previous attempts by Des Cloizeaux to name montebrasite were rejected as his analyses indicated he had specimens in the amblygonite portion of the F-OH series (King and Foord, 1994).]
Amblygonite-Montebrasite Series. The hydroxyl analogue of Amblygonite.
Montebrasite is, by far, the most common member of the group. Amblygonite is scarce.

Occurs chiefly in granite pegmatites of the lithium- and phosphate-rich type. Crystals may be enormous in size (> 1 m.).

Fluorescence of MontebrasiteHide

May have a faint to medium cream yellow fluorescence in SW and LW, frequently patchy. May have associated fluorescent species affecting the appearance.

Other InformationHide

Notes:
Soluble with difficulty in acids. Colours a flame red.

May alter to mixtures of smectite or kaolinite and mica group, often as rims surrounding rounded nodules of unaltered material. Also observed to alter to Turquoise, Wavellite, Wardite, or Morinite.
Health Risks:
No information on health risks for this material has been entered into the database. You should always treat mineral specimens with care.
Industrial Uses:
Previously used as an ore of lithium.
