The crystal structure of julgoldite-Fe3+ from Bombay, India, was investigated by 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy and synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction. Only ferric iron was detected in the Mössbauer measurements and it occurs at two different octahedral sites in the atomic ratio 20:80. Based on Rietveld refinements, the Fe3+ cations are located at the X- and Y-octahedral sites with atomic percentages of about 25% and 75%, respectively. The resulting chemical formula of the Bombay julgoldite sample is crystal-chemical considerations. Such analysis cannot give quantitative results for the valence state of mixed-valence cations in pumpellyite-type minerals and their intracrystalline partitioning behavior. Assignments of the Mössbauer absorption doublets and an analysis of Fe-intracrystalline partitioning behavior are discussed with reference to previous works on different pumpellyite-type minerals.
