Uranocircite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Ba(UO2)2(PO4)2 · 10H2O
Colour:
Yellow-green, yellow; pale canary-yellow in transmitted light.
Lustre:
Pearly
Hardness:
2 - 2½
Specific Gravity:
3.46
Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Member of:
Name:
The name reflects its uranium content and its discovery locality, Falkenstein (Falcon's Stone) - the Greek κίρκος for "CIRCes" meaning "falcon."
Autunite Group.

Dehydrates rapidly in dry atmospheres at normal temperature to metauranocircite-I (Walenta, 1963).
