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 web site.

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

REVISED CHEMICAL FORMULAE

A paper on the mineral vigrishinite has been recently published [Mineralogical Magazine, 82 (2018), 787–807] in which the ideal chemical formula of the mineral is given as NaZnTi4(Si2O7)2O3(OH)(H2O)4, with sodium as an essential constituent. These data were examined carefully by the CNMNC officers and were considered reliable. Accordingly it was agreed to modify the formula of vigrishinite in the official IMA List of Minerals.

A paper on the mineral cafarsite has been recently published [European Journal of Mineralogy, 30 (2018), 859–868] in which the ideal chemical formula of the mineral is revised as (Ca,Na,☐)19Ti8Fe43+Fe42+(AsO3)28F, with no water molecules or hydroxyls, and with fluorine as an essential constituent. These data were examined carefully by the CNMNC officers and were considered reliable. Accordingly it was agreed to modify the formula of cafarsite in the official IMA List of Minerals.
