Formula of Barbertonite

Chemical Properties of Barbertonite gives us information about the mineral's chemical composition. A mineral is basically composed of various elements in varied proportions. These elements define how the mineral will behave when exposed to different conditions. These chemical properties also depend on the way the mineral atoms are bound in the mineral's crystal structure. On the basis of crystallography of minerals a chemical formula is designed for better interpretation of its structure. Formula of Barbertonite is Mg6Cr2(CO3)(OH)16•4(H2O). The molecular weight of Barbertonite is 654.01. The Atomic Structure of Barbertonite properties of minerals gives us further information about a minerals atomic structure.
