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 PROPOSALS APPROVED IN MARCH 2018

IMA 17-H: Spinel supergroup

Proposal 17-H on the classification of the spinel supergroup is accepted. The fifty-three minerals of the spinel supergroup are divided into three groups on the basis of dominant X anion: O2– (oxyspinel), S2– (thiospinel), and Se2– (seleniospinel). Each group is divided into subgroups according to the dominant valence and then the dominant constituent (or heterovalent-pair of constituents) represented by the letter B in the formula AB2X4. The oxyspinel group can be divided into spinel subgroup 2-3 (A2+B3+2O4) and ulvöspinel subgroup 4-2 (A4+B2+2O4), thiospinel group into carrollite subgroup 1-3.5 (A1+B3.5+2S4) and linnaeite subgroup 2-3 (A2+B3+2S4), and the selenospinel group into bornhardtite subgroup 2-3 (A2+B3+2Se4) and tyrrellite. Once the subgroup is established by the valence of B and the dominant B-cation, then the mineral species is identified by the dominant A-cation. There are thirty species in the oxyspinel group, twenty in the thiospinel group and three in the seleniospinel group.

IMA 17-I: Revised end-member formula for flurlite
Proposal 17-I is accepted. A re-evaluation of the site occupancies in flurlite, using BVS calculations, resulted in a change in the dominant cation in the M1 site from Mn2+ to Zn. Consequently, the end-member formula for flurlite becomes [5]Zn[6]Zn3[6]Fe3+(PO4)3(OH)2(H2O)7·2H2O.

IMA 18-A: Redefinition of eztlite
Proposal 18-A is accepted, and the formula for eztlite is redefined, according to new analytical results. The previously accepted formula, published by Sidney Williams in 1982, was Fe3+6Pb2+2(Te4+O3)3(Te6+O6)(OH)10·nH2O, with n about 8. This formula is now redefined to Pb2+2Fe3+3(Te4+O3)3(SO4)O2Cl.

Nepheline - revised chemical formula
In the IMA List of Minerals the ideal chemical formulae of kalsilite and nepheline are given as KAlSiO4 and NaAlSiO4, respectively. Whereas the formula of kalsilite is correct, nepheline must contain some amount of potassium substituting for sodium. Both kalsilite and nepheline are hexagonal, space group P63. In kalsilite, which has a smaller unit cell, all cavities which host alkali cations have a hexagonal outline and are occupied by potassium; in nepheline, due to the doubling of the a parameter, there are 3 cavities with oval outline and 1 cavity with hexagonal outline: the former are occupied by sodium, the latter by potassium. Accordingly, the chemical formula of nepheline should be Na3K(Al4Si4O16). All known chemical analyses of nepheline, including those of nepheline from the type locality (Monte Somma – Vesuvius area, Italy) match the above formula. Therefore potassium is an essential constituent of nepheline and it should appear in the chemical formula of the mineral. This is an executive decision taken by the officers of the IMA CNMNC.

Nepheline group

Davidsmithite (☐,Ca)Na3(Al4Si4O16)
Kaliophilite K4(Al4Si4O16)
Nepheline Na3K(Al4Si4O16)
Trinepheline Na4(Al4Si4O16)
Yoshiokaite Ca4-x[(Al,Si)8O16]

La davidsmithite è l'analogo della nepheline con K che è rimpiazzato da (Ca0.5□0.5).

IMA 2017-107 = nöggerathite-(Ce)

Questa nuova specie, la cui formula end-member potrebbe - per analogia con i piroclori - scriversi con CeZr(Nb0.5TiFe2+0.5)Σ=2O6O, era stata in precedenza descritta da Della Ventura et al. (2000): stessa località, stessi parametri di cella.

Probabilmente in alcuni cristalli Mn2+ domina su Fe2+.
