About w(OH, F, Cl)-dominant Amphibole GroupHide

Formula:
{A0-1}{X2}{Z5}(T8O22)(OH,F,Cl)2
The W(OH, F, Cl)-dominant Amphibole Group is defined with W ((OH)+F+Cl)>1 apfu.
The W(OH, F, Cl)-dominant Amphibole Group belongs to the amphibole supergroup. It contains several subgroups, which is distinguished based on their dominant element(s) in the X position (= IMA B position). These subgroups are again divided into root-name groups based on their valence distribution in the A and Z positions (= IMA C position).

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.
