Eisenkiesel

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
SiO2
Colour:
Red
Name:
A German term, translating to Iron Quartz. "Kiesel" was originally a term for quartz, but has changed meaning over time. In today's use, the word mostly refers to a pebble. On the other hand, silicic acid is still called "Kieselsäure" in german, because it is derived from quartz as its anhydride.
A variety of Quartz

A quartz that is colored red, orange or brown by hematite inclusions. Translucent to almost opaque.
The term "eisenkiesel" is sometimes also used in a wider sense, as a synonym of ferruginous quartz, for any quartz with iron oxides and hydroxide mineral inclusions (hematite, limonite) that is yellow, olive, orange or brown.
