The structure of a new mineral jadarite, LiNaSiB(3)O(7)(OH) (IMA mineral 2006-36), has been determined by simulated annealing and Rietveld refinement of laboratory X-ray powder diffraction data. The structure contains a layer of corner-sharing, tetrahedrally coordinated Li, Si and B forming an unbranched vierer single layer, which is decorated with… CONTINUE READING
