The information given here is provided by the IMA Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification for comparative purposes and as a service to mineralogists working on new species.

Each mineral is described in the following format:

Mineral name, if the authors agree on its release prior to the full description appearing in press

Chemical formula

Type locality

Full authorship of proposal

E-mail address of corresponding author

Relationship to other minerals

Crystal system, Space group; Structure determined, yes or no

Unit-cell parameters

Strongest lines in the X-ray powder diffraction pattern

Type specimen repository and specimen number

Citation details for the mineral prior to publication of full description

Citation details concern the fact that this information will be published in the European Journal of Mineralogy on a routine basis, as well as being added month by month to the Commission’s website.

It is still a requirement for the authors to publish a full description of the new mineral.

NO OTHER INFORMATION WILL BE RELEASED BY THE COMMISSION

NOMENCLATURE PROPOSALS APPROVED IN JULY 2018

Alluaudite supergroup

A new classification and nomenclature scheme has been approved for the minerals of the alluaudite supergroup. The supergroup is divided into the alluaudite group, the wyllieite group, and the bobfergusonite group.

Discreditation of fupingqiuite

As a side effect of the new classification of alluaudites, the mineral fupingqiuite (IMA 2016-087; see CNMNC Newsletter 35) is not a separate species from varulite and has been discredited.
