Raman spectroscopy has been used to study the arsenate minerals haidingerite Ca(AsO3OH)•H2O and brassite Mg(AsO3OH)•4H2O. Intense Raman bands in haidingerite spectrum observed at 745 and 855 cm-1 are assigned to the (AsO3OH)2- ν3 antisymmetric stretching and ν1 symmetric stretching vibrational modes. For brassite two similarly assigned intense bands are found at 809 and 862 cm-1. The observation of multiple Raman bands in the (AsO3OH)2- stretching and bending regions suggests that the arsenate tetrahedrons in the crystal structures of both minerals studied are strongly distorted. Broad Raman bands observed at 2842 cm-1 for haidingerite and 3035 cm-1 for brassite indicate strong hydrogen bonding of water molecules in the structure of these minerals. OH…O hydrogen bond lengths were calculated from the Raman spectra based on empiric relations.
