Shattuckite and plancheite: A crystal chemical study
- Howard T. Evans Jr. and Mary E. Mrose
The orthorhombic crystal structures of shattuckite, Cu5( SiO3)4(OH)2 and planchétite, Cu8(Si4011)2(OH)4 H2O, have been solved. Shattuckite contains silicate chains similar to pyroxene in a complex association with copper atoms, while the closely related planchéite contains silicate chains similar to amphibole.
