Name:
Named by Rene von Tassel in 1952 for Reginald Aldworth Daly (March 18, 1871 Nepanee, Ontario, Canada – September 19, 1957 Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA). Daly was professor at Harvard University and was one of the most brilliant igneous petrologists and established many geological principles. There are Daly Craters on both the Moon and Mars named in his honor.
Dalyite from Terceira ignimbrites contains some Na and minor Hf and Ti, but does not readily incorporate Fe, Mg and Ba.
