Chemical-element adjectival modifi ers are not part of the name of a mineral species. Schaller-type adjectival modifi ers, which have the endings -oan or -ian, formerly recommended by the CNMMN of the IMA, in many cases give erroneous information about the valence of an ion, and are therefore inappropriate. Instead of such modifi ers, the CNMMN has now approved a proposal that chemical-element adjectival modifi ers employing the chemical-element symbol or the name of the chemical element… Expand
