About NestolaiteHide

03650010015152771601533.jpg
Fabrizio Nestola
Formula:
CaSeO3·H2O
Colour:
Light violet
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
Specific Gravity:
3.18
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named in honour of Fabrizio Nestola (b. 1972), Italian mineralogist and crystallographer University of Padova, Padova, Italy.
First purely calcium selenate mineral; second Ca-bearing selenate after piretite.

The crystal structure is based on layers, with sheets of edge-sharing CaO-H2O polyhedra, with [7]Ca; the sheets are interconnected by selenate groups, while the adjacent ones are linked through hydrogen bonds. The Se4+ cations are stacked up towards the interlayer.
