About Braitschite-(Ce)Hide

Formula:
(Ca,Na2)7(Ce,La)2B22O43 · 7H2O
Formula based on the crystal structure refinement: Ca6.15Na0.85REE2.08[B6O7(OH)3(O,OH)3]4(H2O). It may thus be simplified as NaCa6(Ce,La)2[B6O7(OH)3(O,OH)3]4(H2O) (Rowland et al., 2011)
Colour:
Colorless to white
Lustre:
Vitreous
Specific Gravity:
2.903
Crystal System:
Hexagonal
Name:
Named by O.B. Raup, A.J. Gude, E.J. Dwornik, F. Cuttitta, and H.J. Rose in 1968 in honor of Otto Braitsch (17 December 1921 - 25 July 1966), professor at the University of Freiburg, Germany, for his contributions to evaporite mineralogy and geochemistry. The suffix follows IMA naming rules an indicates the dominant rare-earth element.

The name is pronounced brītsch'ite.
