Yoderite is a high-pressure, high-temperature orthosilicate with similarities to both andalusite and kyanite. Its average structure consists of [010] chains of edge-sharing [A(l)Os(OH)] octahedra interconnected by isolated [SiO+] tetrahedra and two edge-sharing trigonal bipyramids of composition [A(2)O+(OH)] and tA(3)O51. Using mean A{O,OH) bond lengths and… (More)
