  • geothite,limonite and hematite

    limonite noun a widely occurring iron oxide ore; a mixture of goethite and hematite and lepidocrociteand to consist of a mixture of several minerals (as geothite, lepidocrocite, hematite) with or without presumably adsorbed additional water, that may in some cases be principally goethite and

  • Heated goethite and natural hematite: Can Raman

      Limonite is a term used to describe hydrated iron oxides and frequently it is associated with hematite weathering In fact, the limonite sample investigated proved to be very heterogeneous and in the Raman microscope, goethite and hematite spectra were obtained, with the later one showing broad bands as in the case of heated goethite

  • In situ study of the goethitehematite phase

      Goethite and hematite are the main Febearing minerals in sedimentary red beds Hematite is abundant in ancient red beds whereas goethite is abundant in younger yellowbrown colored deposits It is generally accepted that hematite is a postdepositional phase formed during diagenesis (Goss 1987) The origin of hematite is still unclear

  • Goethite vs Limonite What's the difference? WikiDiff

    As nouns the difference between goethite and limonite is that goethite is (mineral) an iron oxyhydroxide that is the main constituent of rust while limonite is (mineralogy) any of several natural hydrous iron oxides; often a mixture of goethite and hemite with clays and manganese oxide
