About HinsdaliteHide

Colourless, greenish, pearly white
Vitreous, Greasy
Specific Gravity:
Crystal System:
Named after the Type Locality at the Golden Fleece Mine, Hinsdale County, Colorado, USA.
The Al analogue of corkite and the phosphate analogue of hidalgoite.
Distinguishable from plumbogummite, with which it forms a complete solid-solution series, only by determination of the P:S ratio.

An uncommon secondary mineral occurring in the oxidized zones of polymetallic sulphide deposits.

Classification of HinsdaliteHide

Approved, 'Grandfathered' (first described prior to 1959)

B : Phosphates, etc., with additional anions, without H2O
L : With medium-sized and large cations, (OH, etc.):RO4 = 3:1
Dana 7th ed.:

4 : Anhydrous Compound Phosphates, etc·, Containing Hydroxyl or Halogen

22 : Phosphates, Arsenates or Vanadates with other Anions
3 : Phosphates, arsenates or vanadates with sulphates

Optical Data of HinsdaliteHide

Uniaxial (+)
RI values:
nω = 1.671 nε = 1.689
Max Birefringence:
δ = 0.018
Image shows birefringence interference colour range (at 30µm thickness)
and does not take into account mineral colouration.
Surface Relief:
The optical anomalies common to members of the Beudantite Subgroup are very conspicuous. Six biaxial segments in which the planes of the optic axes are arranged radially to the core at about 60° to each other, may surround an uniaxial core.
