0B12.List of Mineral by the IUGS Subcommission on the Systematics of Metamorphic Rocks: Web
and Rolf Schmid J.Siivola, Department of Geology, University of Helsinki, Finland R.
Schmid, ETH-Centre, Zrich, list contains abbrevations for 240 mineral species, series, subgroups and groups.
It mainly reviewed and adapted to the current classification and nomenclature of minerals.182 of the 192 abbreviations listed by Kretz have been accepted.
58 new abbreviations have been added, in part new mineral names, and in part names for groups of mineral specgenerate abbreviations for numerous other mineral names based on the same root term.mineral abbreviations is also explained
Importance of recommended mineral abbreviations
The use of systematic compound names as recommended by the SCMR (Schmid et al., this vol.) requires all the mineral names to be given as prefixes to the structural root term.This may result in very long names.If the mineral names are replaced by abbreviations, the length of the terms can be reduced to more than the half.
Also in phase diagrams, databases and for many other purposes mineral abbreviations are very helpful.
3BBasis of the list
In 1983 Kretz published a list of mineral abbreviawidely accepted and its use is recommended by several journals (e.g.American Mineralogist).1.Due to incompatibility with the list of mineral species in Mandarinofour mineral names, carnegieite, fassaite (for ferrian aluminian diopside or and thompsonite are removed.
2.Acmite (Acm) is replaced by aegirine (Aeg) 3.Cam and Cpx which currently stand for Ca-clinoamphibole and Ca-r clinoamphibole and clinopyroxene.4.Chrysotile (Ctl) becomes a group name comprising the polymorphs clino-, ortho- and 5.The abbreviations Fac, Fed, Fts, Mkt and Mrb are replaced by Fe2-Act, Fe2-Ed, Fe2-Ts, Mg-Kt and Mg-Rbk.
Though longer, these abbreviations follow the general rules for using abbreviations as outlined below.
The list of names for minerals and mineral examined and a number of prominent names for minerals and mineral groups were selected for ith no entry in the last column).Farther names for groups or subgroups which are not found in Mandarino & Back (2004) but Table 12.1 with the entry in the last column).These new names do not have, of course, the same character and rank as names listed by Mandarino & Back (2004).The latter are here termed encompassing all other names not given by Mandarino & Back.
All of these additional names were three letters (three letters symbols for chemical elements, and to allow sufficient flexibility for further abbreviations in the future), only 4 important mineral groups tions, namely: amphibole (Am)mineral (Cb) and opaque mineral (Op).
4BRules for using the abbreviations
a)Mineral or chemical component? Distinction made by using capital or lower case initial letters in the mineral name or abbreviation If in a paper the same mineral name or mineral abbreviation is used for a natural mineral as well as for a chemical component (end member), ations is meant, it is recommended that the mineral name and its abbreviation are written withite, Ab) and that lower
a chemical component (e.g.
albite, evident that a mineral is meant, lower case initial letters may be used for both the mineral name b) specifying the chemical composition of a
The chemical composition can be specified by placing chemical element symbols with other elements) may be indicated by Fe2 or Fe3, for example, CaMgFe2-Grt (grossular-pyrope-almandine garnet).Prefixing of chemical elements in front of mineral names or their abbreviations should follow the same rule as prefixing mineral names or mineral abbreviations in front of rock names (see below and Schmid et al., order of increasing abundance.This means, in thample given above that CaMgFe2 (grsprpalm).
Element symbols are not seperated from each other by hyphens, but a hyphen is placed between the element symbol(s) and the mineral name or its abbreviation.
c) The glossary of mineral names 004) contains many more mineral names than those present in , consist of compound names containing as a root term one of the names listed in Table 12.1, modified by one or more or ferro-, ferri-, magnesio-, calcio-, hydroxy-,
It is simple to create abbreviations for such names using the following
