Ferro-tschermakite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Gustav Tschermak
Formula:
☐{Ca2}{Fe2+3Al2}(Al2Si6O22)(OH)2
Ferro-tschermakite is defined as a tschermakite group member with the following dominant elements:
C position: Fe as the dominant divalent cation and Al as the dominant trivalent cation.
W position: (OH) as the dominant anion
Colour:
Medium green to dark green to green-black to black, also brownish-green.
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
5 - 6
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
For its iron-rich relationship to Tschermakite, named for Gustav Tschermak.
Ferrotschermakite is defined as a Tschermakite Group member with Fe2+ >Mg and Al>Fe3+ in the C position. Ferrotschermakite has been redefined in the 2012 Amphibole nomenclature in that:


1) The formula is changed from ☐(Ca2)(Fe2+3AlFe3+)(Al2Si6O22)(OH)2 to ☐(Ca2)(Fe2+3Al2)(Al2Si6O22)(OH)2. Consequently all pre-2012 literature references to ferrotschermakite should be checked to verify that Al>Fe3+ in the C position. If Fe3+>Al in the C position the material will be ferro-ferri-tschermakite.

2) The tschermakite group is in the 2012 nomenclature defined with C(Al+Fe3++2Ti)>1,5 apfu, whereas the pre-2012 definition was defined with 5,5 < Si < 6,5 apfu. This redefinition does not change the formula, but many amphiboles qualifying as tschermakite pre-2012 will now be ferro-hornblende or ferro-ferrihornblende.


It should also be noted that pre-1978 tschermakite was defined with A+B(Na+K+Ca)<2,5. As tschermakite often contains less than 2apfu Ca, older literature may describe amphiboles with A(Na+K)>0,5 as tschermakites. These are now considered pargasites.
