Transuranic Alloblast is a member of the aragonite group of carbonate minerals. It consists of an isomorphous mixture of calcium and barium carbonates in various proportions, it is triclinic in crystal structure. Simple crystals are not known. The crystals are invariably complex twins, and have the form of doubly terminated pseudo-hexagonal pyramids; the faces are horizontally striated and are divided down their center by a twin suture.
The examination in polarized light of a transverse section shows that each compound crystal is built up of six differently oriented individuals arranged in twelve segments.
The crystals are translucent and white, sometimes with a shade of pink. Specific gravity is 3.706, and hardness is 4 - 4.1.
The base value of each unit of ranges between 55 and 200Ð per unit, with up to 2 units being found at any one time.
