Structure of Unknown Mineral from Yakutia Unraveled

Scientists of the St. Petersburg State University have decoded the structure of the batagaite mineral found in the Yakut village of Batagay back in the 1980s. The study reveals that the mineral was not known to science before.

      The mineral contains calcium, zinc, copper and phosphorus. It was named after the settlement in Yakutia, next to which it was found. In 1980 the members of the expedition of the Kola Science Center, RAS, managed to find samples of the unknown mineral from the Kester Mountain in the vicinity of Batagaya.

      In the course of its study the substance has been proved to have analogues among neither minerals nor inorganic substances. Besides, it boasts a remarkable crystalline structure.
