Name:
Named by D. Peacor, P.J. Dunn, and W.B. Simmons in 1984 in honor of Dr. Richard Anthony Eggleton, mineralogist at the Australian National University and an expert on the crystal chemistry of the stilpnomelane group of minerals. It was first found in the Big Rock Quarry by Mr. Cecil Cosse in 1975 and submitted to the Smithsonian Institution for examination in 1977.
Ganophyllite Group. The sodium analogue of Ganophyllite.
