About NickelzippeiteHide

Formula:
Ni2(UO2)6(SO4)3(OH)10 · 16H2O
The composition is given here in analogy to the compositions of cobaltzippeite, magnesiozippeite and zinczippeite, according to Burns et al. (2003). It is not entirely certain, though, since nickelzippeite has not been part of that study.
Hardness:
5 - 5½
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Member of:
Name:
Named nickel-zippeite by Frondel et al. in 1976 to distinguish it from other similar zippeite group minerals. The hyphen was removed by Burke in 2008.
This page provides mineralogical data about Nickelzippeite.
