Abstract

Hogtuvaite is a new beryllian member of the aenigmatite group that was discovered in Nordland County, Norway. It is a metamorphic mineral, hosted by Proterozoic granitic gneisses and mafic pegmatites of metamorphic origin. Compositional variations within and between gneiss-hosted samples of hogtuvaite are minimal; however, pegmatite-hosted samples of hogtuvaite are significantly different, containing less Al and Sn, and more Ti and Mn, than those from the gneisses. The mineralogical, optical and crystallographic properties of hogtuvaite are described. A new and uniquely indexed set of X-ray powder diffraction data for aenigmatite is presented. -from Authors
