Nesquehonite, Mg(HCO3)(OH).2H2O or MgCO3.3H2O, was named after its type locality in Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania, USA. The structure of nesquehonite can be envisaged as infinite chains of corner sharing MgO6 octahedra along the b-axis. Within these chains CO32- groups link 3 MgO6 octahedra by two common corners and one edge. This structural arrangement causes strong distortion of the octahedra. Chains are interconnected by hydrogen bonds only, whereby each Mg atom is coordinated to two water… Expand
