2.3 Mineral Groups – Physical Geology – 2nd Edition

2.3 Mineral Groups Most minerals are made up of a cation (a positively charged ion) or several cations, plus an anion (a negatively charged ion (e.g., S 2−)) or an anion complex (e.g., SO 4 2−). For example, in the mineral hematite (Fe 2 O 3), the cation is Fe 3+ (iron) and the anion is O 2− (oxygen). The two Fe 3+ ions have an overall charge of +6 and that balances the overall …

Cryptocrystalline magnesite

2021-9-24 · Magnesia is produced largely by the calcination of natural minerals (~89%), principally magnesite, and rarely from brucite (Mg(OH) 2, dolomite (CaMg(CO 3) 2) or hydromagnesite (Mg 5 (CO 3) 4 (OH) 2 ·4H 2 O). About 11% is produced synthetically by calcination of Mg(OH) 2 derived as a precipitate from seawater and brines (Fig. 1). The …

KGS--Kansas Rocks and Minerals--Kansas Rocks

The green opal-cemented rock in the Ogallala Formation has been described in the section on sandstones, but it is almost as hard as a true quartzite. As opal is a form of silica, this rock may be considered a special type of quartzite. Typical quartzites, however, are cemented with quartz rather than with opal.

2001-1-1 · The occurrence of dolomite rhombs within the massive chalcedony suggests that dolomite crystallization preceded the transformation of biogenic silica to (opal-CT and) chalcedony. In other places, fine-grained aggregates of silica are preserved within the former diatoms, similar to lepispheres typical of opal-CT ( Fig. 7, Fig. 11 ).
