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.

NOMENCLATURE PROPOSALS APPROVED IN APRIL 2018

Jahnsite group

The jahnsite group is established. Minerals within the jahnsite group conform to the general formula XM1M22M32(H2O)8(OH)2(PO4)4. The jahnsite group is divided into the jahnsite subgroup (M3 = Fe3+), which currently includes ten mineral species, and the whiteite subgroup (M3 = Al), which currently includes seven mineral species.

Welinite group

The welinite group is established. Minerals within the welinite group conform to the general formula M262+M1aM1bx+(SiO4)2O(x-2)(OH)(8-x), where x is the total charge pfu at the M1 sites. The welinite group currently includes four mineral species, all of them having M2 = Mn2+: welinite (M1 = W6+□), franciscanite (M1 = V5+□), örebroite (M1 = Sb5+Fe3+), and barwoodite (M1 = Nb5+□).

Ursilite: name discredited

Currently the IMA List of Minerals includes as valid species the following three minerals, all with G (= grandfathered) status: calcioursilite, Ca4(UO2)4(Si2O5)5(OH)6·15H2O; magnioursilite, Mg4(UO2)4(Si2O5)5(OH)6·20H2O; ursilite, Mg4(UO2)4(Si2O5)5.5(OH)5·13H2O. Historically, calcioursilite and magnioursilite were described together in 1957 as “ursilite” from the Oktyabr’skoye deposit, Kyzyltyube-Saj, Samgar Steppe, Tajikistan [Voprosy Geologii Urana (Problems of the Uranium Geology), Moscow, 73 (1957)]. At that occurrence, analyses with Ca > Mg and Mg > Ca were recorded. Subsequently, calcioursilite and magnioursilite were defined instead of ursilite [Proc. 2nd U.N. Int. Conf. on the Peaceful Uses of Atomic Energy, 2, 298–299 (1958); ibidem, 3, 174–177 (1959)]. Therefore today the name “ursilitev” is nothing but an obsolete redundancy, and should be officially discredited. This is an executive decision taken by the officers of the IMA CNMNC.

IMA 18-B: Discreditation of the mineral name “marshallsussmanite” with a reinstatement of the name schizolite

Proposal 18-B is accepted, and “marshallsussmanite” (IMA No. 2013-067) is renamed schizolite, according to historical priority.
