About Sagenite (of Saussure)Hide

Formula:
TiO2
Name:
Named after appearance of the characteristic twin aggregates (Greek & Latin "sagena" = net).
A variety of Rutile

The original definition of the name Sagenite was made by Horace Bénédict de Saussure in 1796.

"These small crystals usually cross at the same angles, so as to form a mesh-like network of parallelograms; it seemed proper to me because of this singular property to provide this stone a name; I have named it Sagenite, from the Greek & Latin word sagena, which means net."

["Ces petits crystaux se croisent ordinairement sous les mêmes angles, de manière à former des réseaux dont les mailles sont des parallèlogrammes; cette singulaire propriété m’a paru propre à déterminer le nom de la pierre; je l’ai nommée Sagenite, du mot grec & latin sagena, qui signifie un filet."]
