Abstract

A nickeliferous fuchsite occurs in the Setogawa group, Shizuoka Prefecture in association with quartz, magnesite and chromite. The fuchsite contains 5.49 percent Cr<SUB>2</SUB>O<SUB>3</SUB> and 2.00 percent NiO, and consists of only 1M polytype with the following lattice parameters: <I>a</I>=5. 275 (5)Å, <I>b</I>=9.045 (5)Å, <I>c</I>=10. 291 (5)Å and β=101.80 (10)°.
