IMA Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification (CNMNC)

NEWSLETTER 52


New minerals and nomenclature modifications approved in 2019
Ritsuro Miyawaki (Chairman, CNMNC)1, Frédéric Hatert (Vice-Chairman, CNMNC)2, Marco Pasero (Vice-Chairman,
CNMNC)3* and Stuart J. Mills (Secretary, CNMNC)4

The information given here is provided by the IMA Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification for comparative
purposes and as a service to mineralogists working on new species.
Each mineral is described in the following format:
Mineral name, if the authors agree on its release prior to the full description appearing in press
Chemical formula
Type locality
Full authorship of proposal
E-mail address of corresponding author
Relationship to other minerals
Crystal system, Space group; Structure determined, yes or no
Unit-cell parameters
Strongest lines in the powder X-ray diffraction pattern
Type specimen repository and specimen number
Citation details for the mineral prior to publication of full description
Citation details concern the fact that this information will be published in the Mineralogical Magazine on a routine basis, as well
as being added month by month to the Commission’s web site.
It is still a requirement for the authors to publish a full description of the new mineral.

NO OTHER INFORMATION WILL BE RELEASED BY THE COMMISSION

NOMENCLATURE/CLASSIFICATION PROPOSALS APPROVED IN OCTOBER 2019

IMA 19-E: Revalidation of dienerite
Proposal 19-E is accepted, and the mineral dienerite is revalidated.
This species shows an ideal chemical formula Ni3As, with
a = 9.6206(9) Å, space group I43d. It is isotypic with domeykite,
Cu3As, and the neotype sample is deposited in the collections
of the Museo di Storia Naturale, Università di Firenze, Italy,
under the catalogue number 3364/I.

IMA 19-F: Redefinition of coquimbite
Proposal 19-F is accepted, and coquimbite is redefined as
AlFe3(SO4)6(H2O)12·6H2O (Z = 2). Neotype material is the sample
studied by Fang and Robinson (1970) from the Tierra
Amarilla (the original type locality described by Rose, 1833)
and kept in the U.S. National Museum, Washington DC, USA,
catalogue number 12548. In order to be compared with
coquimbite, the chemical formulae of paracoquimbite and
aluminocoquimbite are also redefined as Fe4(SO4)6(H2O)12·
6H2O (Z = 6) and Al2Fe2(SO4)6(H2O)12·6H2O (Z = 2), respectively.
Coquimbite and paracoquimbite are characterised by
homeotypic structures, so they constitute the ‘coquimbite
group’. Aluminocoquimbite, characterised by a different topology,
does not belong to the coquimbite group.

NOMENCLATURE/CLASSIFICATION PROPOSALS APPROVED IN NOVEMBER 2019

Revision of the ideal formula of ktenasite
After the approval of fehrite, MgCu4(SO4)2(OH)6·6H2O (IMA
No. 2018-125a; see above), the ideal formula of the related mineral
ktenasite is modified from (Cu,Zn)5(SO4)2(OH)6·6H2O to
ZnCu4(SO4)2(OH)6·6H2O. This is an executive decision taken
by the CNMNC.

Revision of the ideal formula of leisingite
The mineral leisingite has been always assumed to have chemical
formula CuMg2Te6+O6·6H2O. A careful reading of the papers
with the description of the new mineral and of its crystal structure
[Mineral. Mag. 60 (1996), 653–657; Can. Mineral. 35 (1997),
759–763], made it clear that Cu is by far the dominant cation
at the 2c site, whereas Mg is the dominant cation at the 1b site.
Therefore the formula must be changed to Cu2MgTe6+O6·6H2O.
Thanks to Owen Missen for spotting it.

chemical formula, full authorship of proposal, unit-cell parameters,
strongest lines in the X-ray powder diffraction pattern,
and citation details for the mineral prior to publication
