Vibrational spectroscopy has been used to characterise the mineral creaseyite Cu2Pb2(Fe,Al)2(Si5O17)·6H2O. The mineral is found in the oxidised zone of base metal deposits and interestingly is associated with copper silicate minerals including ajoite, kinoite, chrysocolla as well as wulfenite, willemite, mimetite and wickenburgite. Creaseyite is a mineral with zeolitic properties. A Raman band at 998 cm−1 is assigned to the SiO stretching vibration of SiO3 units. The Raman band at 1071 cm−1 is assigned to the SiO stretching vibrations of the Si2O5 units. Raman bands are found at 2750, 2902, 3162, 3470 and 3525 cm−1. The band at 3525 cm−1 is attributed to zeolitic water. Other bands are assigned to water coordinated to the metal cations. Vibrational spectroscopy enables aspects of the molecular structure of creaseyite to be determined.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
