Bayleyite is a hydrous magnesium uranyl carbonate (Axelrod et al., 1951). The mineral name honors William Bayley (1861-1943), professor at the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign) and editor of Economic Geology. Mayer & Mereiter (1986) solved the crystal stricture of the synthetic equivalent. Bayleyite here forms intense yellow microcrystals on sandstone matrix. Very well formed for the species. This material has been confirmed using single crystal X-ray diffraction.
