A new nomenclature scheme for the alluaudite supergroup

Prossima pubblicazione.

Referenza:
▪ Hatert, F. (2019): A new nomenclature scheme for the alluaudite supergroup. European Journal of Mineralogy, 31, (in press).

Abstract:
The alluaudite supergroup contains sixteen Na–Mn–Fe-bearing phosphates occurring in granitic pegmatites, as well as nineteen Na-bearing arsenates found in various geological environments; these minerals are characterized by a monoclinic symmetry (generally C2/c or P21/n space-group types), and by unit-cell parameters generally around a ~ 12, b ~ 12.5, c ~ 6.5 Å, β ~ 115°. The simplified structural formula of alluaudite-type minerals is A(2)’A(1)M(1)M(2)2(TO4)3, and the new nomenclature scheme proposed herein is mainly based on the contents of the M(1) and M(2) octahedral sites. For phosphates, the root name is defined on the basis of the M(2) content, allowing a valency-imposed double-site occupancy for that site: M2(Fe3+Fe3+) = alluaudites s.l., M2(Fe2+Fe3+) = hagendorfites s.l., and M2(Mn2+Fe3+) = varulites s.l. The root-name is used without prefix if the M(1) site is occupied by Mn, but the prefix “ferro-” is added when M(1) is predominantly occupied by Fe2+. For arsenates, the nomenclature is more complex, and numerous root-names are already defined in the literature. We consequently recommend preferentially adding prefixes to these root-names, in order to differentiate arsenates with identical M(2) contents, but with different M(1) contents. Charge-balanced end-member formulae are given for all minerals of the supergroup, and a method to calculate formulae from the electron-microprobe analyses is given as appendix.

NdR: per gli interessati è disponibile il PDF.
Il database scaricabile tiene già conto della nuova nomenclatura:
alluadite group - phosphates (6 specie)
alluaudite group - arsenates (19)
wyllieite group (6)
bobfergusonite group (3)
manitobaite group (1).

Poiché l'alluaudite-tipo (olotipo, Damour 1848) è ora Na-poor hagendorfite, l'alluaudite non ha un olotipo e conseguentemente neppure una località-tipo!
Sarebbe stato opportuno, nello stesso lavoro, definire il nuovo olotipo e la nuova località-tipo, scegliendo una (magari la più vecchia) delle numerose analisi verificate.
