Prossima pubblicazione.

▪ Filatov, S.K., Shablinskii, A.P., Vergasova, L.P., Saprikina, O.U., Bubnova, R.S., Moskaleva, S.V., Belousov, A.B. (2018): Belomarinaite KNa(SO4): A new sulphate from 2012-2013 Tolbachik Fissure eruption, Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia. Mineralogical Magazine, 82, (in press).

Belomarinaite, ideally KNaSO4, is a new sulphate mineral discovered in the Toludskoe lava field formed during Tolbachik Fissure eruption in 2012–2013. The mineral occurs as arborescent aggregates of tabular crystals (1×0.3×0.1 mm3) comprising hematite impurities. The average size of the aggregates is 0.5–0.7 mm. The empirical formula is (K0.95Na0.92Cu0.04)S1.01O4. The crystal structure of belomarinaite was determined using single-crystal X-ray diffraction data: space group P3m1, a = 5.6072(3), c = 7.1781(4) Å, V = 195.45(2) Å3, Z = 2, R1 = 2.6%. In the crystal structure of belomarinaite, there are six cation sites: the [4]S(1,2) sites are occupied by S, the [6]Na and [12]K sites are occupied by Na and K, respectively, giving Na0.5K0.5 apfu and the [10]M1 and [10]M2 sites are occupied by Na0.80K0.20 and K0.80Na0.20 apfu, respectively. The crystal structure is a framework of SO4 tetrahedra, Na octahedra and K, M1 and M2 polyhedra. Belomarinaite is isostructural with the synthetic compound KNaSO4. In belomarinaite, Na and K are disordered over M1 and M2 sites; in its synthetic analogue, Na and K are ordered over M1 and M2 sites, respectively. Its Mohs’ hardness is 2–3. The mineral is uniaxial (+), ω = 1.485(3), ε = 1.488(3) (λ = 589 nm). The strongest lines of the X-ray powder diffraction pattern (d, Å (I, %) (hkl)) are: 4.022 (31) (101); 3.591 (26) (002); 2.884 (74) (102); 2.800 (100) (110); 2.391 (16) (003); 2.296 (8) 201; 2.008 (38) (022); and 1.634 (10) (212). The mineral was named in honour of Russian volcanologist Marina Gennadievna Belousova (b. 1960) for her significant contributions to the monitoring of the Tolbachik Fissure eruption.
