Name: Roscherite
RRUFF ID: R070308
Ideal Chemistry: Ca2Mn2+5Be4(PO4)6(OH)4·6H2O
Locality: Black Mountain Quarry, Rumford, Oxford County, Maine, USA
Source: James Shigley [view label]
Owner: RRUFF
Description: Reddish brown prismatic crystals associated with white albite. The color is a thin coating of something. Based on cell parameters, we cannot exclude greifensteinite as the identification, without chemical analysis.
Status: The identification of this mineral has been confirmed only by single crystal X-ray diffraction.
Mineral Group: [ roscherite (9) ]
Quick search: [ All Roscherite samples (2) ]
Sample Description: Unoriented sample
