About ChalcoalumiteHide

Formula:
CuAl4(SO4)(OH)12 · 3H2O
Colour:
Turquoise-green, pale blue, bluish-grey; colourless in transmitted light.
Lustre:
Vitreous, Dull
Hardness:
Specific Gravity:
2.29
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
In allusion to its composition, containing copper (CHALC-) and ALUMinum.
Chalcoalumite Group.

Compare also the chemically similar woodwardite.

A chalcoalumite-related, Sb-bearing mineral is described by Kolitsch et al. (2012). Its X-ray powder diffraction pattern is somewhat similar to that of chalcoalumite. The mineral may contain Sb(OH)6 groups replacing SO4 groups in the anionic interlayer.

Crystallography of ChalcoalumiteHide

Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Class (H-M):
2 - Sphenoidal
Space Group:
P21
Cell Parameters:
a = 17.09 Å, b = 8.92 Å, c = 10.22 Å
β = 95.88°
Ratio:
a:b:c = 1.916 : 1 : 1.146
Unit Cell V:
1,549.77 ų (Calculated from Unit Cell)
Morphology:
Occurs as rather porous, botryoidal crusts comprised of minute, matted fibers. Relatively large, lath-like crystals coat the outsides of the structures.
Twinning:
Twinning of the laths sometimes apparent with the composition face parallel to the long edge and nearly normal to the flat face. These exhibit re-entrant angles, with symmetrical faces and extinction.
