Gunningite

Gunningite is the zinc member of the kieserite group of minerals.
Gunningite is one of the minerals in the Kieserite group, with the chemical formula (Zn,Mn 2+ )SO 4 ·H 2 O. Its name honours Henry Cecil Gunning (1901–1991) of the Geological Survey of Canada and a Professor at the University of British Columbia.

Evaporite

Kieserite commonly occurs in marine evaporites and rarely in volcanic environments as a sublimate.
Kieserite (MgSO 4 ) may also be included, which often will make up less than four percent of the overall content.

Carnallite

carnalitemagnesium potassium trichloride
It occurs in association with halite, carnallite, polyhalite, anhydrite, boracite, sulfoborite, leonite, epsomite and celestine.
Carnallite occurs with a sequence of potassium and magnesium evaporite minerals: sylvite, kainite, picromerite, polyhalite, and kieserite.

Dietrich Georg KieserDietrich von Kieser
Kieserite is the magnesium sulfate mineral (MgSO 4 ·H 2 O) and is named after Dietrich Georg von Kieser (Jena, Germany 1862).
A magnesium sulfate mineral known as kieserite is named after him.

Leonite

It occurs in association with halite, carnallite, polyhalite, anhydrite, boracite, sulfoborite, leonite, epsomite and celestine.
Leonite can convert to polyhalite, and kieserite can be changed to leonite, Groundwater penetrating bittern salt deposits can convert some to leonite, particularly in the cap regions of salt domes.

Kieserite is the magnesium sulfate mineral (MgSO 4 ·H 2 O) and is named after Dietrich Georg von Kieser (Jena, Germany 1862).
The monohydrate, MgSO 4 ·H 2 O is found as the mineral kieserite.

Epsomite
