Acta Crystallogr Sect E Struct Rep Online. 2008 Aug 23;64(Pt 9):i60-i61. doi: 10.1107/S1600536808026676.The crystal structure of olivenite, ideally Cu(2)(AsO(4))(OH) [dicopper(II) arsenate(V) hydroxide], was redetermined from an untwinned and phosphate-containing natural sample, composition Cu(2)(As(0.92)P(0.08)O(4)), from Majuba Hill (Nevada, USA). Olivenite is structurally analogous with the important rock-forming mineral andalusite, Al(2)OSiO(4). Its structure consists of chains of edge-sharing, distorted [CuO(4)(OH)(2)] octa-hedra extending parallel to . Read More
