About Bussyite-(Ce)Hide

Antoine A. B. Bussy
pale pinkish orange
Crystal System:
Named J.D. Grice, R. Rowe, G. Poirier, A. Pratt, J. Francis in 2007 in honor of Antoine Alexandre Brutus Bussy (29 May 1794, Marseille, France – 1 February 1882, Paris, France), chemist, who is co-credited in isolating the element beryllium, which is a component of this mineral, in August 1828. The "-(Ce)" suffix is in allusion to cerium being the dominant rare earth element in the species.
