About OxyplumboroméiteHide

Formula:
Pb2Sb2O6O
Colour:
Yellow to brownish yellow.
Hardness:
5
Specific Gravity:
6.732 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Isometric
Name:
Named according to the recommended pyrochlore supergroup nomenclature (Atencio et al. 2010), indicating dominant elements and its relation to other roméite group minerals.
The Pb analogue of oxycalcioroméite, ideally Ca2Sb2O7, and cuproroméite, Cu2Sb2(O,OH)7. Chemically related to rosiaite.

Oxyplumboroméite might possibly include much of the common but poorly studied materials known as "bindheimite" and "monimolite".
