Abstract

On the basis of published structural analyses (bond lengths) and on chemical compositions of 50 tourmalines of different varieties, the relationship between the size and cation population of X, Y, Z, B and T polyhedra and also between the a and c cell parameters and mean bond lengths of X, Y, Z, B and T polyhedra have been statistically analysed. High correlation coefficients of multiple linear regression models, describing the influence of substitutions in adjacent cation sites on the dimensions of Y and Z polyhedra in tourmalines with Al > 6 pfu, prove the lack of a significant disordering of octahedral ions, and indicate a significant influence of substitutions in adjacent cation sites on the size of the octahedral sites.
