Schröckingerite

Carbonate mineral

Schröckingerite is a radioactive yellow uranium, hydrated sodium calcium uranyl sulfate carbonate fluoride. Schröckingerite crystallizes in the orthorhombic system, occurring as globular clusters, and fluoresces light.

Schröckingerite was first described in 1783 from an occurrence in Jáchymov, Bohemia , and named for its discoverer, Julius Freiherr Schrockinger von Neudenberg (1814–1882).
