Cesstibtantite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Hardness:
Name:
In allusion to its assumed composition, containing CESium, antimony (Latin = STIBium), and TANTalum.
Synonym:
Cesstibtantite was described originally at Vasin Myl’k Mountain in Voronie Tundry, the Kola Peninsula, Russia, by Voloshin et al. (1981). Other occurrences were described in Manitoba, Canada, by Ercit et al. (1985), at Mt. Holland, Australia, by Nickel & Robinson (1985), and at Utö, Sweden, by Smeds et al. (1999).

The crystal structure of cesstibtantite from Vasin Myl’k Mountain and Manitoba was solved by Ercit et al. (1993).

Both are now to be classified as hydroxykenomicrolite.

The two other samples are also zero valent dominant members of the microlite group, but it is not possible to prove that they are hydroxykenomicrolite.
