Lobanovite

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Constantin Valentinovich Lobanov
Formula:
K2Na(Fe2+4Mg2Na)Ti2(Si4O12)2O2(OH)4
Colour:
Straw yellow to orange
Lustre:
Vitreous
Hardness:
3
Specific Gravity:
3.161 (Calculated)
Crystal System:
Monoclinic
Name:
Originally named for the relationship to astrophyllite.
The name lobanovite honors Dr. Constantin V. Lobanov, a Russian geologist working in the Kola Peninsula. First described in 1959 as "unusual light yellow and greenish fibrous astrophyllite" by E.I. Semenov from Kukisvumchorr Mt, Khibiny, Kola, Russia (Pekov 1998). Peng & Ma (1963) established its monoclinic symmetry. Formally described as a new mineral, as Lobanovite, from Mt. Yukspor, Khibiny, Kola, Russia by Sokolova et al. (2017).
Unique combination of elements.

Note:
Originally named and published as "magnesium astrophyllite" and "magnesioastrophyllite". Validated by IMA in 2015 under the name lobanovite (IMA 15-B).

The structure is based on HOH blocks comprising one cp octahedral and two heteropolyhedral sheets; the HOH blocks repeat along [001]. The O sheet is built of M(1-4) octahedra; the H sheet is formed by T4O12 astrophyllite ribbons having common vertices with D polyhedra dominated by VTi. K and Na atoms are in the interstitial A and B sites.
