Crystal structures and cation occupancies have been ref ined using single-crystal X-ray diffract ion data for natural specimens of ( l) manganoan, intermediate, and calcian bustamites; (2) ferroan and manganoan wollastonites; and (3) serandite and manganoan pectol i tes (schizol i te). Although the si l icate chains of three-tetrahedral repeat are similar in these minerals, the dif ferences in cation arrangements in the octahedral layers result in three structures with dist inct stacking… CONTINUE READING
