About Adranosite-(Fe)Hide

Formula:
(NH4)4NaFe3+2(SO4)4Cl(OH)2
Alternative crystal-chemical formula, emphasising the presence of -Na-Cl-Na-Cl- chains in the structure:(NH4)4Fe3+ 2(OH)2(SO4)4.NaCl; some NH4 may be replaced by K.
Specific Gravity:
2.18
Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Name:
For the relation to Adranosite-(Al).
Isostructural with:
The Fe3+ analogue of Adranosite-(Al). Chemically related to acmonidesite and therasiasite.

Originally described as an anthropogenic phase that has formed on a burning coal dump ["Unnamed (NH4-Fe-Na-Cl Sulphate)"]. Subsequently found in a natural fumarole.
Structurally, an unusual salt inclusion phase (Kolitsch & Brandstätter, 2007; Mitolo et al., 2013).

In the crystal structure, beside the NaCl chains, there are:
- helicoidal [FeO4(OH)2SO4]n chains
- NaO4Cl2 square tetragonal bipyramids that share Cl-bearing corners
- NH4+ ions are located in cages, and the ammonium-bearing sites have the coordination number 9.

Synonymous with UM2011-17-SOCl:FeHNNa.
