Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Tetragonal oxides of general formula M4+O2.

Sellaite is a structurally related magnesium fluoride.


Chemical Properties of Rutile GroupHide

Formula:
M4+O2

Crystallography of Rutile GroupHide

Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Class (H-M):
4/mmm (4/m 2/m 2/m) - Ditetragonal Dipyramidal
Morphology:
Crystals in this group are often elongated in [001] and also pyramidal. Striae are nearly always found parallel to [001].
Twinning:
Most members of the group are nearly always twinned on {101} and less often on {301}.
