Akimotoite

Oxide mineral,ilmenite group

Akimotoite is a rare silicate mineral ((Mg,Fe)SiO3) in the ilmenite It is polymorphous with pyroxene , a natural silicate perovskite that is the most abundant mineral in Earth's silicate mantle. Akimotoite has a vitreous luster, is colorless, and has a white or colorless streak. It crystallizes in the trigonal crystal system in space group R3. It is the silicon analogue of geikielite
