Clinopyroxene Subgroup

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.
Member of:
A subgroup name for monoclinic Pyroxene Group minerals.
Compare Orthopyroxene Subgroup.

The most widespread members include aegirine, augite, hedenbergite and diopside.


Classification of Clinopyroxene Subgroup

Ca-Fe-Mg clinopyroxenes

Synonyms of Clinopyroxene Subgroup

Other Language Names for Clinopyroxene Subgroup

Simplified Chinese:单斜辉石
Spanish:Polyaugita

Varieties of Clinopyroxene Subgroup

Clinohypersthene

An obsolete name for a pyroxene intermediate between clinoenstatite and clinoferrosilite (previously known as ferrosilite).

Subcalcic augite

An obsolete name for a clinopyroxene that would now be categorized as either augite or pigeonite depending on the Ca percentage. If Ca>20% then it would be augite, otherwise pigeonite.

Subcalcic ferroaugite

An obsolete name for a clinopyroxene that would now be categorized as either augite or pigeonite depending on the Ca percentage. If Ca>20% then it would be augite, otherwise pigeonite.
