Stewartite Visible Spectrum (300 - 1200 nm)

Stewartite is a hydrated ferric phosphate, MnFe2(PO4)2(OH)28H2O. Stewartite contains linear chains of ferric ions bridged by one OH group and one sulphate group. Absorption bands are enhanced when the polarization direction is in the direction of the chain.
