Abstract

Ferri-taramite (IMA CNMNC 2021-046), ideally ANaB(CaNa)C(Mg3Fe3+2)(Si6Al2)O22W(OH)2, occurs in skarn from the Jakobsberg manganese mine, Värmland, Sweden. Associated minerals are celsian, phlogopite, aegirine-augite, andradite, hancockite, melanotekite, microcline (var. hyalophane), calcite, baryte, prehnite, macedonite and oxyplumboroméite. Conditions of formation, close to peak metamorphism (at circa 650 ∘C and 0.4 GPa), include silica undersaturation, a slightly peralkaline character and relatively high oxygen fugacities. Ferri-taramite forms poikiloblastic crystals up to 5 mm and is dark brownish black with a yellowish grey streak. The amphibole is brittle with an uneven to splintery fracture. Cleavage parallel to {110} is good. Hardness (Mohs) is ∼ 6, and Dcalc=3.227(5) g cm−3. Holotype ferri-taramite has the experimental unit formula A(Na0.79K0.16Pb0.01)Σ0.96B(Ca1.26Na0.72Mn2+0.02)Σ2C(Mg2.66Mn2+0.58Fe2+0.16Zn0.02Fe3+1.26Al0.26Ti0.06)Σ5.00T(Al1.86Si6.14)Σ8O22W(OH)2, based on chemical analyses (EDS, laser-ablation ICP-MS) and spectroscopic (Mössbauer, infrared) and single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. The mineral is optically biaxial (–), with α=1.670(5), β=1.680(5) and γ=1.685(5) in white light and 2Vmeas=70(10)∘ and 2Vcalc=70.2∘. Ferri-taramite is distinctly pleochroic in transmitted light, with X pale yellow, Y dark brown, Z yellowish brown and absorption Y>Z>X. The eight strongest reflections in the X-ray powder pattern (d values (in Å), Irel, hkl) are 8.44, 60, 110; 3.392, 25, 131; 3.281, 39, 240; 3.140, 100, 310; 2.816, 45, 330; 2.7104, 38, 151; 1.3654, 26, 461; and 1.4451, 33, -661. Refined unit-cell parameters from single-crystal diffraction data are a=9.89596(13), b=18.015(2), c=5.32164(7) Å, β=105.003(13)∘ and V=916.38(2) Å3 for Z=2. Refinement of the crystal structure yielded R=2.26 % for 2722 reflections with Io>2σ(I). The Mn2+ and Fe2+ ions show preference for the M1 and M3 octahedrally coordinated sites, whereas Fe3+ is strongly ordered at M2. The A-group cations, K and Na, are split over two subsites, A(m) and A(2), respectively.
