About AlpeiteHide

Formula:
Ca4Mn3+2Al2(Mn3+Mg)(SiO4)2(Si3O10)(V5+O4)(OH)6
Colour:
Brownish red
Lustre:
Vitreous, Silky
Hardness:
5½ - 6
Specific Gravity:
3.374 (Calculated)

Name:
Named for the type locality, Monte Alpe mine, Italy.
The Ca(Mn3+2Al2)-Mn3+ analogue of ardennite-(V).
At the type locality it crystallized from V- and Mn-rich hydrothermal fluids in an oxidizing environment.
In the structure of alpeite, Mn3+ is the dominant cation in the M1 site and is the dominant trivalent cation in the M3 site, while in all other members of the ardennite group, Al is the dominant cation in the M1 site and is the dominant trivalent cation in the M3 site.
