**What is torbernite luster?**

Lustre: Sub-Adamantine, Vitreous, Waxy, Pearly. Hardness: 2 – 2½

**What is torbernite made of?**

Torbernite is a copper phosphate mineral that contains uranium, making it somewhat radioactive.

### Is torbernite a fluorescent?

Although most, if not all, torbernite is non-fluorescent, reports of torbernite showing anomalous fluorescence appear from time to time.

**What is Palygorskite made up of?**

3.1 Palygorskite. Palygorskite is a magnesium–aluminum phyllosilicate with a fibrous structure that are being used as an adsorbents for PPCPs; its chain such as structure that can expand can restrict the entry of pharmaceutical active ingredient that is cation based from entering into the channels.

**Is Torbernite safe?**

Torbernite is a dangerous mineral composed of hydrated green copper, phosphate, and uranyl. The mineral releases radon naturally and can cause lung cancer if exposure is long enough.

#### What is the most radioactive mineral?

Uranium

Uranium. This grey metal is used as fuel in nuclear reactors, making it one of the most-mined radioactive minerals in the world.

**What is the most radioactive gemstone?**

Of all the gemstones that have been irradiated in recent decades, only blue topaz is still commercially available….Natural radioactive gemstones.

Mineral | Color | Source of Radiation |
---|---|---|

Heliodor (Rössing deposit, Namibia) | yellow-green | Uran (U) |

Monazite | brownish yellow | Thorium (Th) |

**What is the most radioactive rock?**

The rock which commonly contains the highest radioactive element content is granite. Granite evolves by the concentration of light weight minerals from magmas generated deep within the crust.

## Is attapulgite a clay?

Clay minerals are known for their binding properties. Attapulgite is a rare magnesium aluminosilicate mineral with a very high water absorption capacity. This makes it ideal for treating and preventing diarrhoea in humans and animals. Trials in animals also showed that digestive function is improved.

**Where can Palygorskite be found?**

Palygorskite and sepiolite are often found in soils of arid and semiarid environments. Both minerals have a fibrous morphology in contrast to the platy morphology of most 1:1 and 2:1 minerals.

**What are the 7 properties of a parallelogram?**

The 7 properties of a parallelogram are as follows: The opposite sides of a parallelogram are equal. The opposite angles of a parallelogram are equal. The consecutive angle of a parallelogram is supplementary.

### How are the diagonals of a parallelogram supplementary?

Consecutive angles are supplementary (A + D = 180°). If one angle is right, then all angles are right. The diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other.

**Which is the theorem of the parallelogram pqtr?**

Theorem 3: Diagonals of a Parallelogram Bisect Each Other. That means, in a parallelogram, the diagonals bisect each other. Given: PQTR is a parallelogram. PT and QR are the diagonals of the parallelogram. To Prove: The diagonals PT, and RQ bisect each other.

**How to prove that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram?**

Theorem If both pairs of opposite angles of a quadrilateral are congruent, then the quadrilateral is a parallelogram. Example 1 Prove that a quadrilateral is a parallelogram if its opposite angles are congruent. Given: ZCand ZD Prove: ABCD is a parallelogram.
