RM2428   Zunyite

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

Two interpenetrating zunyite crystals, one of them dominant. Its color is due to hematite inclusions. With the shape of a tetrahedron truncated by the faces of the cube. The edge of the tetrahedron measures 12 mm. An interesting specimen for systematic collectors and crystallography lovers. A rare species, it is an aluminum sorosilicate with fluorine and chlorine. We carried out an X-ray diffraction and fluorescence studies that confirmed the species. We recommend an interesting article about the deposit in the magazine Rocks and Minerals (Vol. 95, nº 2, 2020).
