Anglesite: Properties and Occurrence

Anglesite: Properties and Occurrence

Anglesite is a lead sulfate mineral with the chemical formula PbSO4. It is a secondary lead mineral that always forms through the alteration of lead sulfides, primarily Galena. It occurs as an oxidation product of primary lead sulfide ore, Galena. Anglesite occurs as prismatic orthorhombic crysta.....

Andyrobertsite

Andyrobertsite

Andyrobertsite is a rare, complex arsenate mineral with a blue color. It is found in the Tsumeb mine in Namibia and named after Andrew C. Roberts (b. 1950), a mineralogist with the Geological Survey of Canada. A Ca-rich analog (with Ca instead of Cd) is called calcioandyrobertsite and has a more .....

Andradite

Andradite

Andradite is a species of the garnet group. It is a nesosilicate, with formula Ca3Fe2Si3O12. It is a member of the Garnet group, and although not as well-known as other Garnets such as Almandine or Pyrope, it is still fairly abundant and can produce fine Garnet gemstones. Andradite includes three.....

Andesine

Andesine

Andesine is a silicate mineral, a member of the plagioclase feldspar solid solution series. Its chemical formula is (Ca, Na)(Al, Si)4O8, where Ca/(Ca + Na) (% anorthite) is between 30%-50%. It is a red feldspar gemstone, sometimes with greenish hints and a slight labradorescent effect. The plagio.....

Anatase

Anatase

Anatase is one of the three mineral forms of titanium dioxide (TiO2), the other two being brookite and rutile. At higher temperatures, about 915 degrees Celsius, anatase will automatically revert to the rutile structure. It is always found as small, isolated and sharply developed crystals, and li.....
