Abstract

Here we report electron-microprobe data and unit-cell parameters for jinshajiangite, ideally NaBaFe 4Ti2(Si2O7)2 O2(OH)2F, from a new locality: the Oktyabr'skii massif in the coastal area of the Azov Sea, Donetsk region, Ukraine. Chemical analysis by electron microprobe gave Nb2O5 1.59, ZrO2 0.61, TiO2 17.07, SiO2 27.60, Al2O3 0.08, Fe2O3 2.04, FeO 16.42, BaO 9.81, ZnO 0.76, MnO 12.97, CaO 1.82, MgO 0.07, K2O 2.05, Na2O 2.51, F 2.48, H2O 1.92, O ¼ F -1.04, sum 98.76 wt.%; H2O was determined in accord with the required number of monovalent anions for the Ti-dominant perraultite-type minerals: OH þ F ¼ 3 pfu; the Fe/Fe ratio was assigned in accord with Mössbauer-spectroscopy results for jinshajiangite from a different locality. The empirical formula calculated on the basis of 19 (O þ F) is (Na0.71Ca0.28 A0.01)R1(Ba0.56K0.38A0.06)R1(Fe 1.99Mn1.59Fe 0.22Zn0.08Mg0.02Al0.01A0.09)R4 (Ti1.86Nb0.10Zr0.04)R2(Si4.00O14)O2 [(OH)1.86F0.14]R2F1.00, Z ¼ 4. Unit-cell parameters from the single-crystal data were determined by least-squares refinement of 9807 reflections with I. 10rI and are as follows: a ¼ 10.726(8), b ¼ 13.834(10), c ¼ 11.065(8) Å, a ¼ 108.172(5), b ¼ 99.251(7), c ¼ 90.00(1)8, V ¼ 1537.5(3.4) Å3, space group C-1.
