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 powder X-ray 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 theMineralogical Magazineon 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

NOMENCLATURE PROPOSAL APPROVED IN AUGUST 2016

IMA 16-A Gadolinite supergroup

Proposal 16-A on the gadolinite supergroup is accepted. The supergroup is divided in two groups, defined on the basis of the tetrahedral cations: Si4+ in the gadolinite group, and P5+ or As5+ in the herderite group. The gadolinite group is further divided in two subgroups: the gadolinite and datolite subgroups. The herderite group is also divided in two subgroups: the herderite and drugmanite subgroups. Bakerite is discredited.

Seidozerite supergroup

The seidozerite supergroup has been established. The supergroup is divided into four groups: rinkite group, bafertisite group, lamprophyllite group, murmanite group, and includes 45 mineral species. As it was recognized from the revised end-member formulae that some minerals of the supergroup have species-forming rare-earth elements, the name rinkite has been changed to rinkite-(Ce), mosandrite to mosandrite-(Ce), and hainite to hainite-(Y).

Hyalotekite group

The hyalotekite group has been established. It includes the minerals hyalotekite, khvorovite, kapitsaite-(Y) and itsiite.
