Science & Origin of Hanksite
Hanksite is a potassium sulfate mineral that crystallizes in the form of prismatic shards and elongated, tabular crystals. Many chemical and clay impurities can affect its color while forming, leading this mineral to be found in a variety of colors such as white, yellow, grey, light green, light blu,e and even colorless (possibly transparent). Hanksite was first discovered in Searles Lake in San Bernardino, California around 1884-1885 by William Earl Hidden. He chose to name it after Henry Garber Hanks, the first state mineralogist of California (who was still in public office at the time).
Hanksite can be found near or in association with other Sodium/Potassium minerals such as Halite, Borax, and Trona. Most localities around the world are found in dry lake beds, also known as evaporite deposits. Since its initial discovery in southern California over 135 years ago, Hanksite has also been found in the neighboring state of Nevada, as well as halfway around the globe in Turkey.
Hanksite is a water-soluble mineral and should be kept away from any liquid as much as possible. The crystallized body will begin to break down rather quickly if placed in water, leading the structure to eventually dissolve.
