About KaersutiteHide

The Kaersutite group minerals are WO2- dominant amphiboles defined with :
A(Na+K+2Ca)> 0.5 apfu,
B: Ca dominant
CTi > 0.5 apfu and
WO > 1.0 apfu

Kaersutite is defined with
A position: Na dominant
C2+ position: Mg dominant
C3+ position: Al dominant
Dark brown to black
5 - 6
Crystal System:
For the locality at Qaersut (Kaersut), Uummannaq (Umanak) Firth, northern Greenland
The chemical formula of kaersutite has been changed in the 2012 amphibole nomenclature from {Na}{Ca2}{Mg4Ti}(Al2Si6O22)(OH)O to {Na}{Ca2}{Mg3AlTi}(Al2Si6O22)O2 thus adding WO > 1.0 apfu to the CTi > 0.5 apfu requirement to the definition of the mineral. The exact WO2-/(OH)- ratio is rarely analysed and the amphibole report "use Ti content as a proxy for the oxo component in pargasite, and define kaersutite as having CTi >0.50 apfu (≈O2- > 1.00 apfu). However, if the O2- content is known from chemical or crystal-chemical analysis, it takes precedence over use of the Ti content as a proxy.
