Carl Klein
Formula:
(Hg2N)(Cl,SO4) · nH2O
Colour:

Lustre:
Adamantine, Greasy
Hardness:
Crystal System:
Hexagonal
Name:
Named in 1905 by Arthur Sachs in honor of Johann Friedrich Carl Klein [15 September 1842 Hannau, Germany - 23 June 1907 Berlin, Germany], German Professor of Mineralogy and curator of the Museum für Naturkunde, University of Berlin. Klein was a petrographer who made major contributions to understanding mineral optics and the indentification of minerals in thin sections. He was a pioneer in studying meteorites in thin section.

Physical Properties of KleiniteHide

Transparency:
Transparent, Translucent
Colour:

Streak:
Yellow
Hardness:

Optical Data of KleiniteHide

Type:
Uniaxial (+)
RI values:
nω = 2.190 nε = 2.210
Max Birefringence:
δ = 0.020
Image shows birefringence interference colour range (at 30µm thickness)
and does not take into account mineral colouration.
Surface Relief:
Very High
Comments:
Biaxial below 130°C (biaxial negative) and uniaxial above 130°C (uniaxial positive). Isotropic above aproximately 190°C.

Chemical Properties of KleiniteHide

Formula:
(Hg2N)(Cl,SO4) · nH2O

Crystallography of KleiniteHide

Crystal System:
Hexagonal
Class (H-M):
6/mmm (6/m 2/m 2/m) - Dihexagonal Dipyramidal
Space Group:
P63/mmc
Cell Parameters:
a = 6.762(2) Å, c = 11.068(3) Å
Ratio:
a:c = 1 : 1.637
Unit Cell V:
438.3 ų
Z:
4
Morphology:
Crystals short prismatic [0001] with variable development of {10-11}; equidimensional at times. Crystals are anomalously birefringent - true symmetry may be monoclinic or triclinic, due to ordering of zeolitic chloride, sulfate and water, and. apparently hexagonal crystals may be highly twinned and/or pseudomorphs of truly hexagonal high-temperature polymorph (birefringence vanishes above 130°C).
