Reference: Am Min 59 (1974), 1055; European Journal of Mineralogy 10 (1998), 1037; Neuhoff, P.S., Fridriksson, T., Arnórsson, S., and Bird, D.K. (1999) Porosity changes and mineralparagenesis during low-grade metamorphism at Teigarhorn, eastern Iceland. American Journal of Science: 299: 467-501.
Heulandite-Ca
Formula: (Ca,Na)5(Si27Al9)O72 · 26H2O
Description: Neuhoff et al finds that heulandites from the stage II formation are dominantly occupied by Ca 2+, although in some samples Na+ and K+ constitute up to 30 % of the exchangable ions.
