About BodieiteHide

Formula:
Bi2(TeO3)2(SO4)
Colour:
Colorless, yellow, or green
Lustre:
Sub-Adamantine, Greasy
Hardness:
2
Specific Gravity:
6.465 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named for the Bodie Hills volcanic field, in which the Pittsburg-Liberty mine is located, and for the town of Bodie, California, which is about 19 km SSE of the Pittsburg-Liberty mine. Bodie, a gold-mining boomtown established in 1876, had a population of 5000 to 7000 in the late 1870s.
New structure type. Unique combination of elements: the first mineral being both tellurate (tellurate(IV)) and sulfate (sulfate(VI)) of Bi. Alters to montanite.
