Wernerite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Abraham G. Werner
Name:
Named in 1800 by José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva (1763-1838) for Abraham Gottlob Werner. Werner's vital dates are September 25, 1749 (Wehrau, Prussian, Silesia) to June 30, 1817 (Dresden, Germany). He was professor of mining and mineralogy at the Freiberg Mining Academy. He was an influential teacher and his ideas shaped early geological thought, although they were largely abandoned by geologists in his lifetime. Original mineral was from Northo (Nødebro?) and Ulricha Mines (?), Arendal Iron Mines, Norway.
A variety of Scapolite

Scapolite Group. Obsolete name for an intermediate member which covers the Meionite:Marialite range from Me:Ma 3:1 to 1:2.
