Bowlingite - Ca0,25(Mg,Fe)3((Si,Al)4O10)(OH)2* nH2O

Bowlingite is an obsolete name for Saponite (From Latin, "sap" = soap, alluding to its greasy or soapy feel and appearance). Bowlingite is a mixture of Smectite, quartz, chlorite, serperntine, talc. The formation of Iddingsite or Bowlingite depends on O2 fugacity.
