Correianevesite


Correianevesite is a hydrated phosphate of manganese and iron, a member of the reddingite group. When first found, this material was sold as reddingite. Later analysis by Chukanov et al. (2014) showed this material to be distinct from type reddingite (from Connecticut). They named the mineral after José Marques Correia Neves (1929-2011), professor of mineralogy at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. Correianevesite forms brown crystals here to 2-3 mm, but comprising the entire specimen. The mineral forms from alteration of primary triphylite. Rich specimen of a new mineral (IMA2013-007)!
