The main structural unit is the HOH block, with 3 HOH sheets; the H sheet is built of T4O12 astrophyllite ribbon. The HOH blocks alternate with intermediate (I) blocks along [001].

The astrophyllite supergroup is divided in 3 groups:

Astrophyllite group: HOH blocks link via D-XPD-D bridges; Fe3+ dominates at the C7 site.

Kupletskite group: as above, but the C7 site is dominated by Mn2+.

Devitoite group: HOH blocks does not link via D-XPD-D bridges.
