The crystal structures and M-site populations of a series of unheated and heat-treated, near-binary members of the actinolite series were determined from single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. Small, systematic differences in crystal structure (mean and individual bond lengths, octahedral distortions, and Mg-Fe site preferences) between the actinolite and cummingtonite series are documented and rationalized in terms of the bond-valence model. Mg-Fe'?* site preferences among the Ml, M2, and M3… CONTINUE READING
