Preface

Addi­tional Informa­tion

Der Name stammt von griechisch `sphaire` (Sphäre, Kugel) wegen seiner Form; und nach dem Cobaltgehalt.

Safety Instructions

Industrial chemicals are often present in powder form and therefore often contain much higher dangers than natural, crystalline substances. These hazard statements refer to the classification of industrially used chemical compounds that may also occur in this natural mineral. The hazard classification makes no claim to completeness.




Safety classes: H302: Gesundheitsschädlich bei Verschlucken., H317: Kann allergische Hautreaktionen verursachen., H334: Kann bei Einatmen Allergie, asthmaartige Symptome oder Atembeschwerden verursachen., H341: Kann vermutlich genetische Defekte verursachen., H350i: Kann bei Einatmen Krebs erzeugen., H360F: Kann die Fruchtbarkeit beeinträchtigen., H410: Sehr giftig für Wasserorganismen mit langfristiger Wirkung., P201: Vor Gebrauch besondere Anweisungen einholen., P260: Staub / Rauch / Gas / Nebel / Dampf / Aerosol nicht einatmen., P273: Freisetzung in die Umwelt vermeiden., P280: Schutzhandschuhe / Schutzkleidung / Augenschutz / Gesichtsschutz tragen., P302+P352: Bei Berührung mit der Haut: Mit viel Wasser / … waschen.
