Dukeite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Mary Duke Biddle
Formula:
Bi3+24Cr6+8O57(OH)6 · 3H2O
Colour:
Yellow to dirty yellow-brown
Lustre:
Resinous
Hardness:
3 - 4
Specific Gravity:
7.171 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Trigonal
Name:
Named for Duke University (North Carolina), as the holotype specimen was discovered in its colelctions, and for the Duke family. The discoverers of the mineral also note that the name acknowledges the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation 'for its support of mineralogical research that directly led to the initial discovery of the mineral.'
Unique combination of elements. Third natural bismuth-bearing chromate after chrombismite and 'unnamed (Bi chromate oxide)'.

The structure is based on irregular layers of Biφn polyhedra, with φ being O, OH, and H2O; the layers are parallel to (001), linked together by chromate tetrahedra. One of chromate groups shares all vertices with bismuth polyhedra, while the other three chromate groups have only three vertices shared.
