Enalite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
(Th,REE,Al) [(PO4),(SiO4),(OH)]
Colour:
orange-yellow
Lustre:
Resinous
Specific Gravity:
4.721
Crystal System:
Tetragonal
Name:
Named for the discovery locality at Fukuoka, Fukuoka-cho, Ena-gun, Gifu Prefecture, Chubu Region, Honshu Island, Japan.
Many references (and even the original description) call enalite a uranium-rich variety of thorite, but this is not possible, considering that phosphate dominates over silicate. It could be considered either a Th-Si-rich xenotime, or an independent member of the xenotime-thorite group, or perhaps a crystal composed of fine zoning with two different species.

Originally reported from Fukuoka, Fukuoka-cho, Ena-gun, Gifu Prefecture, Chubu Region, Honshu Island, Japan.
