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 powder X-ray 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 Mineralogical Magazine 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

NOMENCLATURE/CLASSIFICATION PROPOSALS APPROVED IN SEPTEMBER 2020

IMA 20-D: Wöhlerite group

Proposal 20-D is accepted and the wöhlerite group is established. It currently includes 9 mineral species: cuspidine, baghdadite, burpalite, låvenite, normandite, niocalite, janhaugite, wöhlerite, and hiortdahlite. The chemical formula of the latter mineral has been revised to Na2Ca4(Ca0.5Zr0.5)Zr(Si2O7)2OF3. Marianoite has been discredited as it is identical to wöhlerite.

Cerite supergroup

The cerite supergroup has been established and includes the cerite group (5 members) and merrillite group (8 members). Cerite-(La) has been renamed ferricerite-(La) since Fe is dominant in the M site. It has the formula (La,Ce,Ca)9Fe3+(SiO4)3(SiO3OH)4(OH)3.
