Cyrtolite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Zr[(SiO4),(OH)4]
Name:
Name refers to its curved crystal faces. From the Greek κνρτος, for bent.
A variety of Zircon

Cyrtolite is a hydrous Th+U bearing zircon (up to 27 mas.% of sum). It sometimes occurs with curved, rounded crystals.

Dana's Textbook of Mineralogy by W.E. Ford (pg 611, 4th ed., 1947) treats cyrtolite as a chemical variety of zircon that "contains uranium, yttrium, and other rare elements". Any old zircon containing uranium will be metamict.

Jeffrey de Fourestier in Glossary of Mineral Synonyms (pg 89, Special publication #2, Canadian Mineralogist, 1998) calls cyrtolite a metamict zircon.

Originally reported from Rockport, Essex Co., Massachusetts, USA, by W.J. Knowlton in Art. XXIV Contributions to Chemistry from the Laboratory of the Lawrence Scientific School, No. 4, On a new mineral from Rockport, Mass. in Am. Jour. Sci., 2nd Series, vol. XLIV, no. 131, pp 224-226, (1867).
