About LaphamiteHide

07527880015118210741434.jpg
Davis M. Lapham
Formula:
As2Se3
Colour:
dark red
Lustre:
Resinous
Hardness:
1 - 2
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named in honor of Davis M. Lapham (5 May 1931, Glens Falls, New York, USA - 20 December 1974, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA), former Chief Mineralogist of the Pennsylvania Geological Survey. In addition to his technical work, he wrote several collector-friendly publications including 'Mineral Collecting in Pennsylvania'. He was a founding member of the Friends of Mineralogy.
Isostructural with:
The Se analogue of orpiment. Compare kalgoorlieite - the chemical (Te) analogue, but not isostructural with laphamite.

Caveat: Some (or all?) of the photographs showing yellow acicular material might depict Se-bearing orpiment rather than laphamite. (See discussion at https://www.mindat.org/forum.php?read,7,361533,391404#msg-391404 )
