About RostiteHide

Formula:
Al(SO4)(OH) · 5H2O
Crystal System:
Orthorhombic
Name:
Named in 1979 by František Čech in honor of Rudolf Rost [1912 Libušíně near Kladna, Czech Republic – 1999 Prague, Czech Republic], Professor of Mineralogy, at the Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic, who had re-characterized the mineral in 1937, considering it to be identical to tamarugite.
Dimorph of:
First observed in a burning coal dump.

Compare also the related khademite.
Note that "rostite" from the type locality contains considerable F (4.25 wt.%) (Zacek & Povondra, 1988) and subsequently was identified as khademite (Zacek et al., 1995).
