Junitoite


Junitoite is a calcium zinc silicate. Williams (1976) named the mineral after Jun Ito (1926-1978), chemist at Harvard who had previously synthesized the compound. Students at the University of Arizona recently refined the crystal structure of junitoite (Yang et al. 2012). Junitoite forms pearly plates, here to 5 mm. Associated are minor hydroxyapopyhllite and kinoite.
