Psilomelane: The mineral psilomelane information and pictures

Psilomelane describes barium manganese hydroxides that do not form in visible crystals. Originally recognized as an individual mineral species, Psilomelane was discredited by the IMA in 1982. However, the name is still in use today, describing manganese hydroxides such as Romanechite and Hollandite that are not specifically identified and sometimes even admixed together.

Psilomelane Wikipedia

Psilomelane is a group name for hard black manganese oxides including hollandite and romanechite.Psilomelane consists of hydrous manganese oxide with variable amounts of barium and potassium.Psilomelane is erroneously, and uncommonly, known as black hematite, despite not being related to true hematite, which is an iron oxide.

Wisconsin Geological & Natural History Survey » Psilomelane

Formula: Mixture of hydrate manganese-barium oxides Description: Psilomelane is used as a blanket term to denote a variety of hard massive mixtures of manganese oxides. Most, but not all, psilomelane is the mineral romanechite (BaMn 2+ Mn 4+ 8 O 16 (OH) 4 ).The term is so loosely used, and the substance referred to usually so superficially examined that all reported psilomelane and romanechite

PSILOMELANE (Barium Manganese Oxide Hydroxide)

Psilomelane is a mineral name that is losing its significance. Still in use around the world the name is applied to hydrated barium bearing manganese specimens. It is probably a mixture of several minerals but is composed mostly of the mineral Romanechite,Ba(Mn+2, Mn+4) 5 O 10 -H 2 O.

Ore microscopic studies of the manganese minerals of Jamda

Sep 01, 1955· In this paper the author has put forward the results of his study of the manganese ore minerals of Jamda Valley under the reflecting microscope. He differs from Dr. Spencer (1948) who suggested that the ores are entirely composed of pyrolusite, and has identified five different manganese minerals under the microscope. These are: Psilomelane, Pyrolusite, Manganite, Polianite and

Microhardness characterisation of manganese ore minerals

Microhardness testing using the Vickers indenter is a potentially valuable characterisation technique to correlate the physical and optical properties of Mn ore minerals with their mineral chemistry and texture when used in conjunction with electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) and helium pycnometry.

Manganese minerals occur in very varied ways. Rhodochrosite and rhodonite occur as veinstone gangue in some silver lodes, the gossan of which carries the oxide minerals, pyrolusite, psilomelane, etc. Rhodochrosite also occurs as a metasomatic replacement of limestone. The most important and interesting deposits of manganese, however, are those
