About tsilaisite the new mineral should have the status "redefined" (also if the redefinition was not done on material from the type locality).
It is one of the few species named by a locality which is not the type locality...

If I recall, tsilaisite ,(for Tsilaisina, Madagascar), was named as a hypothetical Mn tourmaline end-member, but the material was considered an Mn-bearing elbaite ,since it did not have sufficient Mn to be a new species. The IMA List of Mineral Names lists it's status as "discredited", as does MDI-Mineral..

So I think it's status is "approved" rather than "redefined".

As you know, Jim, a discredited name could not be used for 50 years. For this reason, probably, the better solution is a redefinition.

Davidlloydite now published:

Hawthorne, F.C., Cooper, M.A., Abdu, Y.A., Ball, N.A., Back, M.E., Tait, K.T. (2012): Davidlloydite, ideally Zn3(AsO4)2(H2O)4, a new arsenate mineral from the Tsumeb mine, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) region, Namibia: description and crystal structure. Mineralogical Magazine, 76, 45-57.

Davidlloydite, ideally Zn3(AsO4)2(H2O)4, is a new supergene mineral from the Tsumeb mine, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) region, Namibia. It occurs as elongated prisms (~10:1 length-to-width ratio) that are flattened on {010}, and up to 100 × 20 × 10 μm in size. The crystals occur as aggregates (up to 500 μm across) of subparallel to slightly diverging prisms lying partly on and partly embedded in fine-grained calcioandyrobertsite. Crystals are prismatic along [001] and flattened on {010}, and show the forms {010} dominant and {100} subsidiary. Davidlloydite is colourless with a white streak and a vitreous lustre; it does not fluoresce under ultraviolet light. The cleavage is distinct on {010}, and no parting or twinning was observed. The Mohs hardness is 3–4. Davidlloydite is brittle with an irregular to hackly fracture. The calculated density is 3.661 g cm −3. Optical properties were measured with a Bloss spindle stage for the wavelength 590 nm using a gel filter. The indices of refraction are α = 1.671, β = 1.687, γ = 1.695, all ±0.002; the calculated birefringence is 0.024; 2Vobs = 65.4(6)°, 2Vcalc = 70°; the dispersion is r < v, weak; pleochroism was not observed. Davidlloydite is triclinic, space group P-1, with a = 5.9756(4), b = 7.6002(5), c = 5.4471(4) Å, α = 84.2892(9), β = 90.4920(9), γ = 87.9958(9)°, V = 245.99(5) Å3, Z = 1 and a:b:c = 0.7861:1:0.7167. The seven strongest lines in the X-ray powder diffraction pattern [listed as d (Å), I, (hkl)] are as follows: 4.620, 100, (011, 1İ10); 7.526, 71, (010); 2.974, 49, (200, 022İ); 3.253, 40, (021, 120); 2.701, 39, (2İ10, 002, 1İ2İ1); 5.409, 37, (001); 2.810, 37, (210). Chemical analysis by electron microprobe gave As2O5 43.03, ZnO 37.95, CuO 5.65, H2O(calc) 13.27, sum 99.90 wt.%. The H2O content and the valence state of As were determined by crystal structure analysis. On the basis of 12 anions with H2O = 4 a.p.f.u., the empirical formula is (Zn2.53Cu0.39)Σ2.92As2.03O8(H2O)4.
The crystal structure of davidlloydite was solved by direct methods and refined to an R1 index of 1.51% based on 1422 unique observed reflections collected on a three-circle rotating-anode (MoKα radiation) diffractometer equipped with multilayer optics and an APEX-II detector. In the structure of davidlloydite, sheets of corner-sharing (As5+O4) and (ZnO4) tetrahedra are linked by ZnO2(H2O)4 octahedra. The structure is related to that of parahopeite.

Natrotitanite now published:

A. V. Stepanov, G. K. Bekenova, V. L. Levin and F. C. Hawthorne (2012): Natrotitanite, ideally (Na0.5Y0.5)Ti(SiO4)O, a new mineral from the Verkhnee Espe deposit, Akjailyautas mountains, Eastern Kazakhstan district, Kazakhstan: description and crystal structure. Mineralogical Magazine, 76, 37-44.

Natrotitanite, ideally (Na0.5Y0.5)Ti(SiO4)O, is a new mineral from the Verkhnee Espe rare-element deposit at the northern exo-contact of the Akjailyautas granite massif in the northern part of the Tarbagatai mountain range, Eastern Kazakhstan. Both the mineral and the name have been approved by the Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification of the International Mineralogical Association (IMA 2010-033). Star-shaped aggregates of small short prisms of yellow or yellowish white (Na,Y,REE)-bearing titanite rimmed by thin (~2 μm) rims of natrotitanite are embedded in yttrium-bearing fluorite and replace narsarsukite. Associated minerals are microcline, albite, quartz, riebeckite, aegirine, biotite, astrophyllite, rutile, zircon and elpidite. Natrotitanite is milky white to yellowish grey, transparent to translucent, and has a white streak and a vitreous lustre. It shows pale orange cathodoluminescence but does not fluoresce under ultraviolet light. It shows no cleavage or parting, and is brittle; the calculated density is 3.833 g cm−3. The indices of refraction, measured with the Bloss spindle stage for the wavelength 590 nm using a gel filter, are α = 1.904, γ = 2.030, and these values are in accord with the mean refractive index, 1.988, calculated from the Gladstone-Dale relation. Natrotitanite is monoclinic, C2/c, a = 6.5691(2), b = 8.6869(3), c = 7.0924(2) Å, β = 114.1269(4)°, V = 369.4(2) Å3, Z = 4, a:b:c = 0.7562:1: 0.8164. The seven strongest lines in the X-ray powder diffraction pattern [in the order d (Å), I, (hkl)] are as follows: 2.597, 10, (130); 3.248, 8, (112İ); 2.994, 6, (200); 1.641, 4, (330); 4.941, 3, (110); 1.498, 3, (400); 2.273, 3, (113İ), Chemical analysis by electron microprobe gave Nb2O5 1.28, SiO2 27.83, TiO2 35.00, SnO2 0.57, V2O3 0.36, Fe2O3 0.23, Y2O3 7.87, Ce2O3 0.83, Sm2O3 0.26, Gd2O3 0.46, Tb2O3 0.17, Dy2O3 2.45, Ho2O3 0.16, Er2O3 2.24, Tm2O3 0.50, Yb2O3 2.53, Nd2O3 0.35, Lu2O3 0.28, MnO 0.33, CaO 8.16, Na2O 5.55, F 1.52 O≡F –0.64, sum 98.71 wt.%. The resulting empirical formula is (Na0.39Ca0.32Y0.15Dy0.03Yb0.03 Er0.03Ce0.01Ho0.01Tm0.01Gd0.01Nd0.01)Σ 1.00(Ti0.95Nb0.02Sn0.01 Mn0.01V0.01)Σ 1.01Si1.01O4.00(O0.83F0.17), calculated on the basis of 3 cations per formula unit. The general formula is written as (Na,Ca,Y,REE)TiSiO4(O,F), and the endmember formula is (Na0.5Y0.5)Ti(SiO4)O.
The crystal structure of a composite optically continuous crystal of natrotitanite and (Na, Y)-bearing titanite was mounted on a Bruker D8 three-circle diffractometer equipped with a rotating anode generator (MoKα radiation), a multi-layer optics incident-beam path and an APEX-II CCD detector. The crystal structure was refined in space group C2/c to a final R1 index of 1.8%. Natrotitanite is isostructural with titanite, (Na + Y + REE) replacing Ca at the Ca site in the titanite structure.

Thanks Nicolas for your interest in making mindat even better. The minerals are on their way. Things takes time.smiling smiley

All new species approved according to the September-october 2011 list are now entered in the database. The minerals ( those which are not yet entered) from the nov-dec 2011 list will follow in due time.

Shulamitite Ca3TiFe3+AlO8 – a new perovskite-related mineral from Hatrurim Basin, Israel. EJM (fast track)

Shulamitite, ideally Ca3TiFe3+AlO8, is a mineral intermediate between perovskite CaTiO3 and brownmillerite Ca2(Fe,Al)2O5. It was discovered as a major mineral in a high-temperature larnite-mayenite rock from the Hatrurim Basin, Israel. Shulamitite is associated with larnite, F-rich mayenite, Cr-containing spinel, ye’elimite, fluorapatite, and magnesioferrite, and retrograde phases (portlandite, hematite, hillebrandite, afwillite, foshagite and katoite). The mineral forms reddish brown subhedral grains or prismatic platelets up to 200 µm and intergrowths up to 500 µm. The empirical formula of the holotype shulamitite (mean of 73 analyses) is (Ca2.992Sr0.007LREE0.007)(Ti0.981Zr0.014Nb0.001)(Fe3+0.947Mg0.022Cr0.012Fe2+0.012Mn0.001)(Al0.658Fe3+0.288Si0.054)O8. The X-ray diffraction powder-pattern (MoKα-radiation) shows the strongest lines {d [Å](Iobs)} at: 2.677(100), 2.755(40), 1.940(40), 11.12(19), 1.585(17), 1.842(16), 1.559(16), 3.89 (13), 1.527(13). The unit-cell parameters and space group are: a = 5.4200(6), b = 11.064(1), c = 5.5383(7)Å, V=332.12(1) Å3, Pmma, Z=2. The calculated density is 3.84 g/cm3. The crystal structure of shulamitite has been refined from X-ray single-crystal data to R1 = 0.029 %. No partitioning among octahedral sites was found for Ti and Fe3+ in the structure of shulamitite, these cations are randomly distributed among all octahedra indicating an example of "valency-imposed double site occupancy". The strong bands in the Raman spectrum of shulamitite are at: 238, 250, 388, 561, and 742 cm-1. Shulamitite from the Hatrurim Basin crystallized under combustion metamorphism conditions characterized by very high temperatures (1150–1170 °C) and low pressures (high-T-region of the spurrite-merwinite facies). Chemical data for shulamitite and its Fe-analog from other metacarbonate occurrences (natural and anthropoogenic) are given here.
