About Uranpyrochlore (of Hogarth 1977)Hide

usually is enriched by Ti, but in lesser quantities then betafites
Red, Red-brown, chocolate-brown to black, amber-yellow
Adamantine, Resinous
4 - 5
Crystal System:
The name reflects its uranium content and similarity to pyrochlore (Holmquist P.J., 1896).
First Recorded Locality:
Pyrochlore Group. The uranium analogue of the other members of the Pyrochlore Subgroup.
Uranpyrochlore was discredited by Atencio et al. (2010). The samples named as uranpyrochlore in previous literature are not fulfilling the conditions (according to the new nomenclature of the pyrochlore supergroup) to be named as a uranpyrochlore.
Past time microprobe analyzes, requiring 2010 nomenclature rules for Oxyuranpyrochlore, appeared.

Classification of Uranpyrochlore (of Hogarth 1977)Hide


4 : OXIDES (Hydroxides, V[5,6] vanadates, arsenites, antimonites, bismuthites, sulfites, selenites, tellurites, iodates)
D : Metal: Oxygen = 1:2 and similar
H : With large (+- medium-sized) cations; sheets of edge-sharing octahedra

2 : A2B2O6(O,OH,F)

18 : Niobates and Tantalates
4 : Niobates and tantalates containing both U and rare earths

Physical Properties of Uranpyrochlore (of Hogarth 1977)Hide

Adamantine, Resinous
Red, Red-brown, chocolate-brown to black, amber-yellow
4 - 5 on Mohs scale
