Carbonate-rich Fluorapatite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
Ca5(PO4,CO3)3(F,O)
Colour:
White, pale gray, creamy white; frequently stained yellow, brown, red, or black by iron oxides and other minerals
Lustre:

Specific Gravity:

Crystal System:
Hexagonal
Name:
Named in 1906 by Peter Nikolaevich Chirvinsky [Carbapatit] or in 1916 by Reinhard Brauns [Carbonatapatit] from the Greek word meaning "to deceive" and the CARBONATE- prefix in allusion to the presence of some carbonate substitution for phosphate. Many early synonyms exist for this mineral including: pseudoapatite, francolite, collophane, dahllite, carbapatite, podolite, quercylite, kurskite, grodnolite, etc., but not all of these names represent homogeneous materials nor are strictly applied to fluorine-dominant compositions.
A variety of Fluorapatite

A variety of fluorapatite with carbonate group (CO3) substituting for some of the phosphate (PO4) groups.
