Ghiaraite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Formula:
CaCl2•4H2O
Specific Gravity:
1.838 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Triclinic
Name:
In honor of Maria Rosaria Ghiara (b. 1948) who is Head of Real Museo Mineralogico of Napoli and Centro Musei delle Scienze Naturali e Fisiche dell’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II. Several years ago Ghiara began a program to promote scientific collaborations to obtain new information about the stored minerals from the Vesuvius volcano in the last 200 years.
Known synthetic compound. The type sample was collected at the Vesuvius volcano, stored in a sealed glass vial and deposited at the Real Museo di Napoli in 1872 by Arcangelo Scacchi. The combination of small grain size plus sensitivity to the moisture did not allow a better physical or optical characterization.
