Beaverite-(Cu)

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Pb(Fe23+Cu)(SO4)2(OH)6
In the ideal end-member Fe3+:Cu is 2:1.
System:
Trigonal
Colour:
Yellow
Lustre:
Earthy
Hardness:
3½ - 4½
Name:
For Beaver County, Utah, USA.
Originally named beaverite.
Compare beaverite-(Zn) and also osarizawaite.

Can be distinguished from plumbojarosite only by accurate determination of the Fe:Cu ratio.
Other Fe members of the alunite family are also visually very similar.
