Aluminum orthophosphate - Berlinite - AlPO4

Introduction

Aluminum orthophosphate, AlPO4, is a rhombic crystal made of sodium phosphate and aluminum salt. In this chemical configuration, aluminum is present as three-way positively charged cation (Al3+) reciprocal electrostaticaly to the phosphate anion (PO43).
