w(O)-dominant Amphibole Group

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
The W(O)-dominant Amphibole Group is defined with WO > 1 apfu.
The W(O)-dominant Amphibole Group belongs to the amphibole supergroup and contains the amphibole minerals with WO2- > W((OH)+F+Cl)2-.

The additional charge in the W position compared with the amphiboles in the W(OH,F,Cl)-dominant Amphibole Group is accompanied by the occurrence of additional high-charge (≥3+) Z-cations (= IMA C cations) ordered at the M(1) and/or M(3) sites; the aggregate charge at Z position (=IMA C position) may thus exceed 12+.

Any W(O)-dominant amphibole corresponding to a (OH) dominant root name will be named with an oxo-prefix.

On 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.
