Kuliginite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
A iron-magnesium hydroxychloride mineral. Fe2+ analog of tondiite.
New structure type. Kuliginite has a spinel-like crystal structure which is also typical for several copper minerals of the atacamite group.

Chemically resembles iowaite, which however is also a hydrate. Probably the Fe analogue of haydeeite, a member of the atacamite group, which is also trigonal.

Kuliginite may contains inclusions of iowaite.
