About WinchiteHide

Formula:
◻{CaNa}{Mg4Al}(Si8O22)(OH)2
The winchite-group minerals are defined as sodium-calcium amphiboles with A(Na+K+ 2Ca)<0.5 apfu and with C(Al+Fe3++2Ti)<1.5 apfu. The W position may contain (OH),F or Cl.

Winchite is defined with
C2+ position: Mg dominant
C3+ position: Al dominant
W position: (OH) dominant.
Colour:
Cobalt-blue to violet-blue, lavender-gray, gray, colorless
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named in honor of Howard James Winch (1877, Buckhurst Hill, Essex, England - 1964, Essex, England) analytical chemist, mineralogist, metallurgist, and mining engineer with the Kajlidongri quarry, who discovered of the mineral. He also discovered hollandite.
Compare the chemically similar richterite.

The Kajlidongri mine, Madhya Pradesh, India, is generally considered to be the type locality for winchite, but since Fe3+ >> Al the mineral composition of the mineral found here corresponds to a ferri-winchite composition. See locality page for further information.
