Goethite is invariably brown; much local material is fibrous in habit, but some occurs as well-crystallized, bladed crystals in subparallel to divergent fasicles (Figure 22-56).
It was found in the oxidized zone at the north end of the Franklin Mine, in the Buckwheat Dolomite, and as a matrix for secondary copper carbonates on the 200 level.
At Sterling Hill, goethite is common in the oxidized material from the surface pit workings, occurring as hollow nodules associated with hetaerolite, chalcophanite, and hemimorphite.

Goethite was named for Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832), a German philosopher and poet who also was a mineralogist.
The most intensive red tones are obtained as a result of calcining goethite at a temperature between 500-600°C. The change in color is directly related to the dehydration of goethite and its transformation into hematite.
Goethite is not considered toxic but care should be used in handling the dry powder pigment so as not to inhale the dust.

 Goethite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Goethite often forms through the weathering of other iron-rich minerals, and thus is a common component of soils.
Goethite is found all over the planet, usually in the form of concretions, stalactitic formations, oolites (a form consisting of tiny round grains cemented together), reniform (kidney shapes) or botryoidal (globular, like bunches of grapes) accumulations.
Significant deposits of goethite are found in England, Cuba, and Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Colorado, Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, and Tennessee in the United States.

Although goethite is extremely insoluble in oxidizing environments at values of pH characteristic of most low temperature terrestrial environments, our research on a modern system indicates that there is apparently continuous, biologically-mediated dissolution and re-precipitation of goethite in active, wet, oxidized soils.
Data from goethite formed in that ancient, wet, tropical environment, indicate that fluxes of soil CO2 arising from biological activity (respiration) may have been as high as 10 millimoles of CO2 per square meter per hour.
For example, formation of goethite as a consequence of pyrite oxidation in the presence of ambient limestone represents a circumstance in which mixing between the CO2 from "upstream soils" and CO2 from local dissolution of limestone is recorded by the Fe(CO3)OH component in the goethite.

 From Nanodots to Nanorods: Oriented aggregation and magnetic evolution of nanocrystalline goethite
Goethite is a common iron oxyhydroxide and an important mineral in the biogeochemical cycle of iron at the Earth's surface.
Perhaps this is because past studies have traditionally used needle-shaped goethite particles that are substantially larger than the goethite nanoparticles commonly observed in nature.
High-resolution transmission electron microscopy and low-temperature magnetometry of synthetic goethite nanocrystals show that when aqueous suspensions are aged at 90°C, the nanocrystals grow almost exclusively by oriented aggregation of 3–4 nm primary nanocrystals.

 GOETHITE MORPHOLOGIES INVESTIGATED VIA X-
Synthetic and natural goethites display a variety of particle morphologies that are dependent on solution conditions during formation (Schwertmann 1990).
Factors influencing goethite morphology include pH and the presence or absence of specifically adsorbing ions in solution.
In order to facilitate rapid preliminary comparison of synthetic goethite samples, we have investigated the use of powder XRD to derive similar qualitative information via the influence of preferred orientation during sample preparation.

 Kinetic Study of Goethite Formation from Ferrihydrite in Alkaline Medium
The kinetics of goethite formation from ferrihydrite was studied colorimetrically in the initial pH range of 11.00-12.20 and at temperatures varying between 40 and 80
It was shown that the rate of goethite crystallization is significantly influenced by the aging temperature and by the initial pH.
Both the shrinking core model results and the high value of the activation energy favor the hypothesis that the rate of the ferrihydrite transformation process is controlled by the surface chemical reaction.
