Magnussonite, a new arsenite mineral from the Langban Mine in Sweden

Magnussonite, a new arsenite mineral from the Langban Mine in Sweden

Arkiv foer Mineralogi och Geologi 2(1-2): 133-135

The manner of occurrence, crystallographic, optical, and physical properties, and chemical composition of magnussonite found as fine-grained green incrustations in fissures in dolomite or hematite at Langban, Sweden, are described, and x-ray diffraction data are given. Magnussonite has n = 1.980 + or - 0.005, hardness 3.5-4, specific gravity 4.30 (observed) and 4.23 (calculated), cube edge 16.05 A, and the formula (Mn, Mg, Cu) (sub 5) (OH, Cl) (AsO (sub 3) ) (sub 3) .
