Please read the corrigendum first before continuing.

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 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.

IMA 19-E: revalidation of dienerite

Proposal 19-E is accepted, and the mineral dienerite is revalidated. This species shows an ideal chemical formula Ni3As, with a=9.6206(9) Å, space group I43d. It is isotypic with domeykite, Cu3As, and the neotype sample is deposited in the collections of the Museo di Storia Naturale, Università di Firenze, Italy, under the catalogue number 3364/I.

IMA 19-F: redefinition of coquimbite

Proposal 19-F is accepted, and coquimbite is redefined as AlFe3(SO4)6(H2O)126H2O (Z=2). Neotype material is the sample studied by Fang and Robinson (1970) from the Tierra Amarilla (the original type locality described by Rose, 1833) and kept in the US National Museum, Washington DC, USA, catalogue number 12548. In order to be compared with coquimbite, the chemical formulae of paracoquimbite and aluminocoquimbite are also redefined as Fe4(SO4)6(H2O)126H2O (Z=6) and Al2Fe2(SO4)6(H2O)126H2O (Z=2), respectively. Coquimbite and paracoquimbite are characterized by homeotypic structures, so they constitute the “coquimbite group”. Aluminocoquimbite, characterized by a different topology, does not belong to the coquimbite group.

Revision of the ideal formula of ktenasite

After the approval of fehrite, MgCu4(SO4)2(OH)66H2O (IMA no. 2018-125a; see above), the ideal formula of the related mineral ktenasite is modified from (Cu,Zn)5(SO4)2(OH)66H2O to ZnCu4(SO4)2(OH)66H2O. This is an executive decision made by the CNMNC.

Revision of the ideal formula of leisingite

The mineral leisingite has always been assumed to have the chemical formula CuMg2Te6+O66H2O. A careful reading of the papers with the description of the new mineral and of its crystal structure [Mineral. Mag. 60 (1996), 653–657; Can. Mineral. 35 (1997), 759–763] made it clear that Cu is by far the dominant cation at the 2c site, whereas Mg is the dominant cation at the 1b site. Therefore the formula must be changed to Cu2MgTe6+O66H2O. Thanks to Owen Missen for spotting it.
