WHAT DOES PYROPHYLLITE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

pyrophyllite

Pyrophyllite

Pyrophyllite is a phyllosilicate mineral composed of aluminium silicate hydroxide: Al2Si4O102. It occurs in two more or less distinct varieties, namely, as crystalline folia and as compact masses; distinct crystals are not known. The folia have a pronounced pearly lustre, owing to the presence of a perfect cleavage parallel to their surfaces: they are flexible but not elastic, and are usually arranged radially in fan-like or spherical groups. This variety, when heated before the blowpipe, exfoliates and swells up to many times its original volume, hence the name pyrophyllite, from the Greek pyros and phyllos, given by R. Hermann in 1829. The color of both varieties is white, pale green, greyish or yellowish; they are very soft and are greasy to the touch. The specific gravity is 2.65 - 2.85. The two varieties are thus very similar to talc.

Definition of pyrophyllite in the English dictionary
