WHAT DOES TANTALITE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

tantalite

Tantalite

The mineral group tantalite is the primary source of the chemical element tantalum. It is chemically similar to columbite, and the two are often grouped together as a semi-singular mineral called coltan or "columbite-tantalite" in many mineral guides. However, tantalite has a much greater specific gravity than columbite. Iron-rich tantalite is the mineral tantalite- or ferrotantalite and manganese-rich is tantalite- or manganotantalite. Tantalite is also very close to tapiolite. Those minerals have same chemical composition, but different crystal symmetry orthorhombic for tantalite and tetragonal for tapiolite. Tantalite is black to brown in both color and streak. Manganese rich tantalites can be brown and translucent.

Definition of tantalite in the English dictionary

The definition of tantalite in the dictionary is a heavy brownish mineral consisting of a tantalum oxide of iron and manganese in orthorhombic crystalline form: it occurs in coarse granite, often with columbite, and is an ore of tantalum. Formula: 2O6.
