Name:
Named in 1985 by Fabian Cesbron and Daria Ginderow in honor of Sidney Arthur Williams [December 26, 1933 Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - December 8, 2006 Douglas, Arizona, USA], mineralogist, Phelps Dodge Corporation, Douglas, Arizona, USA. Sid Williams had a profound interest in systematic mineralogy and systematic language. His choice of using native languages of the region from where he named a mineral is unmatched in mineralogy.
