About SpangoliteHide

Formula:
Cu6Al(SO4)(OH)12Cl · 3H2O
Colour:
Dark to emerald green, blue-green; light green in transmitted light.
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
3
Specific Gravity:
3.14
Crystal System:
Trigonal
Name:
Named in 1890 by Samuel Lewis Penfield in honor of Norman Spang [1842 Etna, Pennsylvania, USA - December 1922 Paris, France], iron manufacturer and mineral collector of Etna, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, USA, contributor of the type specimen for study.
A secondary mineral commonly occurring with other secondary copper minerals in oxidized zones of copper-bearing ore bodies.

Note: The exact type locality is uncertain; the original specimen found “within a radius of 200 miles of Tombstone” (probably from Bisbee).

Thin tabular spangolite may be confused with chalcophyllite.

Crystallography of SpangoliteHide

Crystal System:
Trigonal
Class (H-M):
3m - Ditrigonal Pyramidal
Space Group:
P3 1c
Cell Parameters:
a = 8.24 Å, c = 14.34 Å
Ratio:
a:c = 1 : 1.74
Unit Cell V:
843.21 ų (Calculated from Unit Cell)
Z:
2
Morphology:
Crystals frequently holohedral in aspect; either short prismatic [0001] or, more commonly, tabular {0001}. Less commonly hemimorphic with large {0001} and tapering toward the antilogous pole. The prism and trigonal pyramid faces are horizontally striated with series of trigonal pyramids and prisms in oscillatory combination. The geometrically equivalent positive and negative trigonal pyramids are seemingly always equally developed, rendering a hexagonal appearance to the crystal.
Twinning:
On {0001}, rare, with the acute (antilogous) poles of the two individuals joined together.
Comment:
Cell parameters are variable: a = 8.245-8.278 A, c = 14.32-14.53 A
