REVISED CHEMICAL FORMULA

After the approval of the new mineral markeyite
(IMA No. 2016-090; see CNMNC Newsletter
35), the authors of the proposal communicated
results of subsequent analytical work on this
mineral, which shows higher contents of CO2
and lower concentrations of H2O. The new data
were examined carefully by the CNMNC
officers and were found reliable. The new
revised simplified formula Ca9(UO2)4(CO3)13·
28H2O has been approved executively.

ERRATUM

IMA No. 2017-010 Levantite
In CNMNCNewsletter 37, the type locality was
given incorrectly. The correct type locality is:
Har Parsa West slope (Mt.Parsa, N31°12’29”; E35°16’45.6”),
Hatrurim Basin pyrometamorphic rock field, Negev Desert,
Arad, Israel

Problemi IMA CNMNC per la zincovelesite-6N6S.

1. With IMA 2016-073 the CNMNC approved a new species of the högbomite supergroup, with formula Mg6Al20Fe3+2O38(OH)2 and name magnesiobeltrandoite-2N3S, simultaneously approving that the root-name "beltrandoite" is for the Fe3+-dominant “nolanitic” member. (The type-description is now in the EJM fast track).

2. With IMA 2017-034 the CNMNC has now approved a second new species of the högbomite supergroup, with formula Zn3(Fe3+,Mn3+,Al,Ti)8O15(OH) and name zincovelesite-6N6S, simultaneously approving that the new root-name "velesite" is for the type locality but, implicitly, for the Fe3+-dominant analogue of magnesiohögbomite-6N6S, that is to say for the Fe3+-dominant “nolanitic” member as well.

It's evident that the two things are in clear contradiction...

Spero venga presto presa la giusta posizione al riguardo.

Big Roberto!

Saperlo a Tavagnasco... ma c'è Cremona o Torino...
Complimenti anche a Marco... e a tutti coloro che hanno lavorato per raggiungere l'obiettivo.
