Falottaite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Dehydrates slowly (over several months) under ambient conditions to form the dihydrate lindbergite (Kolitsch & Gröbner 20009; Graeser & Gabriel, 2016). The originally colourless and transparent crystals turn white and opaque during the dehydration process. Stability studies of synthetic Mn oxalates indicate a dehydration temperature of about 30°C (Huizing et al., 1977).

Known as a synthetic compound.
