Frustrated magnets with integer spin are predicted to have exotic physical properties including spin nematicity, yet few are known to exist. We report a new, frustrated S = 1 magnet, BaNi3(OH)2(VO4)2, which is the structural analogue of the mineral vesignieite. Magnetic frustration arises from a competition between ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic ordering leading to a glassy transition at 19 K.
