About MinohliteHide

Formula:
(Cu,Zn)7(SO4)2(OH)10•8H2O
Cu:Zn is somewhat variable.
Colour:
Bluish green
Crystal System:
Hexagonal
Name:
Named after Minoh City, where it was discovered.
Chemically and structurally related to schulenbergite.
Minohlite and schulenbergite may be intimately intergrown (Orlandi, 2013).
If minohlite is heated >50°C, it turns into schulenbergite (Orlandi, 2013).
