Chabazite is a type of zeolite mineral that has a unique crystal structure. It is a hydrous calcium, potassium, and aluminum silicate mineral Chabazite is typically found in volcanic rocks and can be formed as a result of hydrothermal alteration. It has a characteristic pink, orange, or white color and is often used as a decorative stone.
The crystal structure of chabazite consists of interconnected cages or channels that can trap small molecules such as water or gases. These channels are formed by the arrangement of tetrahedral and octahedral units in the crystal lattice. The size and shape of these channels can vary depending on the specific type of chabazite mineral.
