The introduction of a fifth group of amphiboles, the Na–Ca–Mg–Fe–Mn–Li group, defined by 0.50 < B(Mg,Fe2+,Mn2+,Li) < 1.50 and 0.50 ≤ B(Ca,Na) ≤ 1.50 atoms per formula unit, with members whittakerite and ottoliniite, has been required by recent discoveries of B(Li,Na) amphiboles. These, and other new discoveries, such as sodicpedrizite (which is herein slightly, but significantly, changed from the original idealized formula), necessitate amendments to the IMA 1997 definitions of the Mg–Fe–Mn–Li… CONTINUE READING
