Pargasite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
{Na}{Ca2}{Mg4Al}(Al2Si6O22)(OH)2
Pargasite is defined as a pargasite group member with the following dominant elements:
A position: Na
C position: Mg as the dominant divalent cation and Al as the dominant trivalent cation.
W position: OH as the dominant anion
Colour:
Light-brown, brown, greenish-brown to dark green and black.
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
5 - 6
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named in 1814 by Count Fabian Gotthard von Steinheil for the locality in the Pargas Valley, Finland. {Note: Count Fabian Gotthard von Steinheil is not well-known as a mineralogist. He was Governor General of Finland in 1810. Steinheilite was named for him by Johan Gadolin, also in 1814.}
