Abstract
Hurlbutite has been identified as the first Be mineral from the Vastan (a) over circle iron mine, Sk (a) over circle ne, Sweden. The mineral is yellowish to whitish and its microscopic habit is platy and porous. Associated minerals are pinkish apatite, hematite, quartz and svanbergite. The unit cell dimensions calculated from powder X-ray diffraction data are: a = 8.321(8) Angstrom, b = 8.834(8) Angstrom, c = 7.881(7) Angstrom, beta = 90.38(6)degrees. Energy dispersive X-ray analyses of Ca, Sr and P indicated the formula (Ca0.93Sr0.07)Be-2(PO4)(2). The presence of Be and O was qualitatively confirmed by parallel electron energy loss spectroscopy, and traces of B were also detected.
