Phosphosiderite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
FePO4 · 2H2O
System:
Monoclinic
Colour:
Purple to reddish ...
Lustre:
Vitreous, Resinous
Hardness:
3½ - 4
Name:
Originally found by Alfred Lewis Oliver Legrand Des Cloizeaux in 1858, but designated "type I hureaulite". Named in 1890 by Willy Bruhns and Karl Heinrich Emil Georg Busz for its composition, being a PHOSPHate, and from the Greek σίδηρος "SIDERos" for iron. Alfred LaCroix intruced vilateite in 1910, while Duncan McConnel described clinobarrandite in 1940. Metastrengite was named by Palache, Berman, and Frondel in 1951 as the original phosphosiderite was described as a orthorhombic mineral.
