The crystal chemistry of elsmoreite from the Hemerdon (Drakelands) mine, UK: hydrokenoelsmoreite-3C and hydrokenoelsmoreite-6R

Mills, Stuart J.; Christy, Andrew G.; Rumsey, Mike S.; Spratt, John


A crystallographic and chemical study of two 'elsmoreite' samples (previously described as 'ferritungstite') from the Hemerdon mine (now known as the Drakelands mine), Devon, United Kingdom has shown them to be two different polytypes of hydrokenoelsmoreite. Hydrokenoelsmoreite-3C (HKE-3C) crystallizes in space group Fd3m, with the unit-cell parameter a = 10.3065(3) Å.
