About Nybøite Root NameHide

Formula:
ANa2(Z2+3Z3+2)(AlSi7O22)(OH,F,Cl)2
The nybøite minerals are sodium amphiboles defined with A(Na+K+2Ca)> 0.5 apfu and Z(Al+Fe3++2Ti) > 1.5 apfu. The individual minerals are defined by their dominant elements in the A, Z2+, Z3+ and W member.

The root-name mineral, nybøite are defined with Na, Mg, Al and (OH) as the dominant elements. Nybøite minerals with other dominant elements are named with pre-fixes in accordance with the guidelines establised in the 2012 amphibole nomenclature.

On mindat.org we avoid using variables with the same symbol as elements and deviate from the IMA nomenclaure in that we use X rather than B, Z rather than C and (OH,F,Cl,O) rather than W.
Name:
Nybøite root name originates from the type locality of Nybøite, the Nybø eclogite pod in Western Norway.
