New compositional and structural data validate the status of jamborite

Bindi, L; Christy, Andrew; Mills, Stuart J.; Ciriotti, Marco E.; Bittarello, Erica


Jamborite was originally described with the formula (Ni2+,Ni3+,Fe)(OH)2(OH,S,H2O) from Ca' de' Ladri and Monteacuto Ragazza near Bologna, and Castelluccio di Moscheda near Modena, Italy. Re-examination of the mineral from the type localities and Rio Vesale, Sestola, Val Panaro (Emilia-Romagna, Italy), led to the discovery of a crystal suitable for study by single-crystal and powder X-ray diffraction, SEM-EDS, and Raman spectroscopy. Jamborite crystallizes in the space group REmbedded Imagem,...[Show more]
