About PaddlewheeliteHide

Formula:
MgCa5Cu2(UO2)4(CO3)12(H2O)33
Colour:
Blue green
Lustre:
Sub-Adamantine
Hardness:
2
Specific Gravity:
2.497 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Named after its distinctive structure, which consists of paddle-wheel clusters of uranyl tricarbonate units bound by square pyramidal copper “axles” and a cubic calcium cation “gearbox.”
Chemically and, most probably, also structurally related to voglite. Paddlewheelite structure is based upon the well-known structural motif, uranyl-tricarbonate cluster (UO2)(CO3)3, involved in a larger basic structural unit called a paddlewheel structure. The characteristic structural building unit, the modification of which is occurring also in the minerals albrechtschraufite, andersonite, braunerite and línekite. Paddlewheelite is the second-most structurally complex uranyl carbonate mineral known after ewingite.
