Hutcheonite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Ian Hutcheon
Formula:
Ca3Ti2(SiAl2)O12
Specific Gravity:
3.86 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Isometric
Name:
Named in honor of Ian Douglas Hutcheon (1947 - March 26, 2015), a cosmochemist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, California, U.S.A. He made many contributions to the isotopic studies of meteorites and dating of extraterrestrial material.
Chemically very similar to paqueite. Also similar to grossmanite.

Probably a product of Fe-alkali-halogen metasomatism of primary minerals forming a Ca-Al-rich inclusion (CAI) in a chondrite.
