About UM1986-10-CO:ClHMgMnZn (also called Mineral F, Dunn, 1995)Hide

Formula:
Mg5(Zn,Mn)3(CO3)2(OH,Cl)12 · H2O
Colour:
white
Lustre:
Pearly
Specific Gravity:
2.52
Name:
Also given the designation Mineral F (Dunn, 1995)
Chemically resembles loseyite and, to some extent, also sclarite.

Forms extremely fine-grained mixture in which it dominates; the minor is possibly a silico-carbonate.

The aggregates are often frothy, may also be layered appearance; other specimens
resemble clay. Association: chlorophoenicite, celestine, hetaerolite, hodgkinsonite, willemite (Sterling Hill); holdenite and sphalerite (Franklin).
