Bariosincosite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Ba(VO)2(PO4)2 · 4H2O
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
3
Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Name:
Named for its relationship to sincosite.
The barium analogue of sincosite.

Some samples from the type locality are rich in Sr (Uwe Kolitsch, unpubl. data), thus indicating that the Sr analogue may also occur in nature.
