Formula:
Na3Al(V10O28)•22H2O
Colour:
orange to golden orange
Lustre:
Sub-Adamantine
Hardness:
1
Specific Gravity:

Crystal System:
Triclinic
Name:
Named in honor of Dr. John Michael Hughes (b. 1952), formerly Professor of Mineralogy at Miami University and now Professor of Mineralogy and former Provost at the University of Vermont, for his long and outstanding career in mineralogy, including his extensive work on the pascoite family of minerals and vanadium bronzes.
Hughesite is orange to golden orange, and its streak is yellow. The thinnest layers of hughesite appear orange, whereas the thickest layers are golden orange. Crystals are variable in habit, from blocky to spear-shaped and platy.
