Series Formula:
KCa12(SiO4)4(SO4)2O2F to BaCa12(SiO4)4(SO4)2O3
A series between Nabimusaite and Dargaite

3:1 type AB12(TO4)4(TO4)2W3 compounds.
A = Ba, K, Sr, etc.
B = Ca, Na, etc.
T = Si, P, V5+, S6+, Al, etc.
W = O2-, F

The modular-layered structure, broken antiperovskite type, is derived from hatrurite. It characterizes in the presence of triple {[W3B12](TO4)4} layers of arctite-nabimusaite type.
