    Abstract

    Wycheproofite is a new hydrated sodium aluminium zirconium phosphate from a pegmatite vein in granite at Wycheproof, in northwestern Victoria, Australia. The mineral occurs as compact, finely fibrous masses in small cavities in the quartz/feldspar/muscovite/schorl-bearing pegmatite. The physical, optical and crystallographic properties of wycheproofite are described. Data on the third occurrence of kosnarite, KZr2(PO4)3, at Wycheproof are also given. -from Authors
