Abstract The Mössbauer spectra of several blue beryls have been obtained in the temperature range of 4.2–500 K. A common feature observed in all room-temperature spectra is the presence of an asymmetric Fe2+ doublet (ΔEQ ∼ 2.7 mm s−1, δ ∼ 1.1 mm s−1), with a very broad low-velocity peak. This asymmetry seems to be related to a relaxation process involving ferrous ions and water molecules in the structural channels, as suggested by Price et al. (1976). Surprisingly, the spectrum at 500 K also… Expand
