About BityiteHide

White yellowish; colorless; white; brownish
Vitreous, Pearly
Specific Gravity:
Crystal System:
Named by Lacroix (1908) for a 2292 m high mountain massif, Mt. Ibity (or in older French literature spelled as Mt. Bity), a landmark in the area close to the type locality. The chemical composition was later established by Strunz (1956).

The Italian occurrences of bityite are not confirmed by probed analyses and they can be classified as margarite rich in Li and Be.
A Li member of the Mica Group.

Classification of BityiteHide

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)

9 : SILICATES (Germanates)
E : Phyllosilicates
C : Phyllosilicates with mica sheets, composed of tetrahedral and octahedral nets

71 : PHYLLOSILICATES Sheets of Six-Membered Rings
2 : Sheets of 6-membered rings with 2:1 layers

16 : Silicates Containing Aluminum and other Metals
1 : Aluminosilicates of Li

Physical Properties of BityiteHide
