DESCRIPTION

BARRERITE is an EXTREMELY RARE ZEOLITE specimen from a little known locality - KIUIU ISLAND (pronounced "Q-U") in southeastern ALASKA. The crystals are LUSTROUS and TRANSLUCENT. This is another terrific specimen that I picked up from a friend at the TUCSON GEM & MINERAL SHOW this year. The now-retired owner of the boat that used to make mineral collecting trips along the Alaskan coastline was lolling in the sun just outside his room, and we got to chatting. The upshot: he provided me with some of the last available barerrite from Kiuiu Island. On his last trip there before selling the boat, he couldn't find the locality - it had been lost when the seas ravaged the coastline, presumably never to be seen again!

Empirical Formula: Na5.45K1.06Ca0.84Mg0.17Al8.19Fe2+0.01Si22.72O72·25.78(H2O)
Environment: On the walls of large fractures in deeply weathered andesitic and rhyolitic lavas.
IMA Status: Approved IMA 1974
Locality: Found near Capo Pula, below South Efisio Tower, Nora, Sardinia, Italy. Link to MinDat.org Location Data.
Name Origin: For Richard Maling Barrer (1910- ), New Zealand-born British teacher ad student of the chemistry of zeolites.
Cleavage: [???] Perfect
Color: White, Pink.
Density: 2.13
Diaphaniety: Transparent to Translucent
Hardness: 3-4 - Calcite-Fluorite
Luster: Vitreous (Glassy)
Streak: white
