Non-classical pyriboles (NCP) represent a complex group of related mineral phases that range structurally and compositionally between pyroxenes and mica. They are characterized by tetrahedral silicate chain multiplicity other than single or double, and typically occur as polysomatic lamellar intergrowths between themselves and/or with pyroxenes and amphiboles in diverse geological environments including regional and contact-metamorphosed ultramafic, mafic and ocean-floor rocks and hydrothermally altered sediments. The study of fine lamellar aggregates of NCPs is complicated further by the presence of extensive and diverse microstructures such as stacking and chain multiplicity faults, dislocations, chain terminations, and polysomatic and polytypic disorder.
