About Kamotoite-(Y)Hide

Formula:
Y2(UO2)4(CO3)3O4 · 14H2O
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named by M. Deliens and P. Piret in 1986 after the town of Kamoto, Katanga, Democratic Republic of Congo, where the type locality is situated.
One of 4 currently known yttrium-uranium(uranyl) minerals of the natural salts class; the other representatives of this group are bijvoetite-(Y) (carbonate), alwilkinsite-(Y) and sejkoraite-(Y) (sulphates). Kamotoite-(Y) is thus the second natural Y-U carbonate after bijvoetite-(Y).

The similarity of kamotoite-(Y) and bijvoetite-(Y) may be more than chemical in natue, as Plášil & Petříček (2016) have shown that structures of these two minerals are the same (although the identity of these two minerals is not yet confirmed). Nevertheless, the XR pattern is pseudo-orthorhombic due to twinning, and the structure is based on sheets of the bijvoetite-(Y) uranyl/anion-topology, the sheets being electroneutral. Water resides in the interlayer space and does not directly coordinate any cation.
