Abstract:
The crystal structure of the new mineral magnesioneptunite (K0.8Na0.1−0.1)Na2Li(Ti0.39Mg0.34Fe0.27)2(Ti0.59Mg0.22Fe0.19)211>2(O,OH) from the xenolith of Verkhnechegemskaya caldera (Lakarga Mountain, North Caucasus) has been investigated by X-ray diffraction (XCalibur-S diffractometer, R = 0.0244): a = 16.3271(7) Å, b = 12.4788(4) Å, c = 9.9666(4) Å, β = 115.651(5), V = 1830.5(1) Å3, sp. gr. C2/c, Z = 4, and ρcalcd = 3.152 g/cm3. The disordered distribution of Ti, Mg, and Fe atoms in the octahedra forming the basis of the cationic framework is established. It is shown that the isomorphic occupation of octahedral positions by cations of three types corresponds to the centrosymmetric crystal structure and is likely caused by the high-temperature crystallization of the mineral
