RM2989   Zunyite

Qualat-e-Balat salt dome, Bandar Abbas, Hormozgan, Iran

Very sharp single zunyite crystal with good luster, coloured by red hematite inclusions and with some small brilliant foliaceous hematite partially included in faces. Very clean tetrahedron form, truncated by cubic faces. Tetrahedron edge is 9.7 mm. A good sized and perfect crystallographic specimen of this unusual species, a rare sorosilicate of aluminum and chlorine, with fluorine. Analized by X-ray difraction and X-ray fluorescence.


Size: 9.7 x 9.5 x 9.2 mm.
Main crystal: 9.7 mm arista/edge.
Found in 2018.

Analyzed specimen with report


 

RM2427   Zunyite and hematite

Qualat-e-Balat salt dome, Bandar Abbas, Hormozgan, Iran

Very well defined zunyite crystals, with luster and on matrix. The intense tile colour is due to hematite inclusions. With clean tetrahedron shape, truncated by cube faces. The edge of both tetrahedrons measures 8 mm. They are included in a small matrix of hematite. A crystallographic specimen of this mineral species, a rare aluminum chlorine sorosilicate with fluorine. We performed some X-ray diffraction studies that confirmed the species. We recommend an interesting article about this Iranian deposit in the magazine Rocks and Minerals (Vol. 95, nº 2, 2020).


Size: 3.8 x 2.7 x 1 cm.
Main crystal: 8 mm edge.
