The uranyl silicate minerals have been divided into three groups on the basis of their uranium to silicon ratios. The 1:1 group includes uranophane, beta-uranophane, boltwoodite, sodium boltwoodite, kasolite, sklodowskite, and cuprosklodowskite. A structure refinement of uranophane, a structure determination of boltwoodite, and previously reported structure determinations of most of these minerals indicate that they are composed of uranyl silicate chains made of edge-shared uranium pentagonal… 
Mineralogy, Crystallography and Structural Complexity of Natural Uranyl Silicates
Naturally occurring uranyl silicates are common constituents of the oxidized parts (i.e., supergene zone) of various types of uranium deposits. Their abundance reflects the widespread distribution of
The layered uranyl silicate mineral uranophane-β: crystal structure, mechanical properties, Raman spectrum and comparison with the α-polymorph.
The crystal structure, elastic properties and the Raman spectrum of the layered calcium uranyl silicate pentahydrate mineral uranophane-β, Ca(UO2)2Si2O6(OH)2·5H2O, are studied by means of
A NEW URANYL SILICATE SHEET IN THE STRUCTURE OF HAIWEEITE AND COMPARISON TO OTHER URANYL SILICATES
The structure of haiweeite, Ca[(UO2)2Si5O12(OH)2](H2O)3, Z = 4, orthorhombic, a 7.125(1), b 17.937(2), c 18.342(2) A, V 2344.3(7) A 3 , space group Cmcm, has been solved by direct methods and refined
New mineralogical data on uranophane and β-uranophane; synthesis of uranophane
Abstract Uranyl-silicates are widespread minerals in oxidised parts of various uranium deposits, and they frequently contain associations of the polymorphic forms of uranophane. In several recent
Structural, mechanical and Raman spectroscopic characterization of the layered uranyl silicate mineral, uranophane-α, by density functional theory methods
ABSTRACT The layered uranyl silicate clay-like mineral, uranophane-α, Ca(UO2)2(SiO3OH)2·5H2O, was studied by first-principles calculations based on the density functional theory method. The

The only recorded occurrence of sklodowskite is that of Shinkolobwe, Belgian Congo. New x-ray data are reported, and it is concluded that structural differences preclude complete isomorphism between
