About TokkoiteHide

Formula:
K2Ca4[Si7O18(OH)](OH,F)
Previous formula: K2Ca4Si7O17(O,OH,F)4
Colour:
Light yellow
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
4 - 5
Crystal System:
Triclinic
Name:
Named after its discovery locality, Davan stream near Vislopolovka village, between the Chara and Tokko Rivers, Saha Republic, Russia.
Isostructural with:
Chemically similar to mountainite, hydroxyapophyllite-(K), shlykovite, rhodesite, and cryptophyllite.

The difference from tinaksite is in (1) greater lattice constants (mainly the parameter b), (2) longer distances, (3) longer M1-M3 and O20-O2 bonds, and (4) more distorted M1 polyhedron. Contains significant admixture of Fe3+.
