Bucklandite (of Hermann)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
William Buckland
Named in 1862 by Hans Rudolph Hermann in honor of William Buckland [12 March 1784 Axminster, Devon, England, UK – 14 August 1856 Islip, Oxford, England, UK]. Buckland was reader in geology at Oxford University and became one of the most noted geologists of his era. Buckland, also a theologian, recognized that the age of the Earth was far greater than suggested by Bishop Ussher. Many of Buckland's researches and discoveries involved the study of paleontology and one of his important discoveries was the dinosaur Megalosaurus.
Morphological variety of dipyramidal Epidote. It is usually dark-colored, REE-bearing, transitive to Allanite-(Ce). The first description of the variety was made by Hermann in 1833 from Akhmatovskaya Kop' (Southern Ural).
