• Ankerite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ankerite Ankerite is a calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese carbonate mineral of the group of rhombohedral carbonates with formula: Ca(Fe,Mg,Mn)(CO 3) 2.In composition it is closely related to dolomite, but differs from this in having magnesium replaced by varying amounts of iron(II) and manganese.It forms a series with dolomite and kutnohorite.. The crystallographic and physical characters resemble ...

Note: Most (unanalysed) "ankerite" specimens are actually Fe-bearing (ferroan) dolomite (Mg>Fe), because of nomenclature changes. The majority of alleged "ankerite" photos here actually depict Fe-rich dolomite (except for a relatively few analytically confirmed ankerites).

    www.sciencedirect.com/topics/earth-and-planetary-sciences/ankerite The Buffalo Ankerite Mine lies on the southern limb of the Edwards syncline, which has the Paymaster on the northern limb and Edward's prospect around the fold hinge. It is important because two zones were mined at the Buffalo Ankerite, each on the opposite limbs of an anticline (Figure 9.16).The geological plan shows that the ore bodies were stratabound, conformable, and occurred on the limbs ...
  • ANKERITE (Calcium Iron Magnesium Manganese Carbonate)

    www.galleries.com/Ankerite Ankerite is named after Professor M. J. Anker, an Austrian mineralogist. Ankerite's formula is often written as CaFe(CO 3) 2; but there is actually a significant amount of magnesium amd manganese substitution for the iron and so the formula should be written as it is above.Ankerite forms in iron rich hydrothermal veins and metamorphic rocks with sulfides and other iron minerals.
