[1] Zincovelesite-6n6s, zn3(fe3+,mn3+,al,ti)8o15(oh), a new högbomite-supergroup mineral from jacupica mountains, republic of macedonia / N. V. Chukanov, M. G. Krzhizhanovskaya, S. Jančev et al. // Mineralogy and Petrology. — 2018. — Vol. 112. — P. 733–742. A new mineral species zincovelesite-6N6S with the simplified formula Zn3(Fe3+,Mn3+,Al,Ti)8O15(OH) was discovered in the orogenetic zone related to the “Mixed Series” metamorphic complex near the Nežilovo village, Jacupica Mountains, Pelagonia mountain range, Republic of Macedonia. In oxide Zn-Fe-Mn ore, zincovelesite-6N6S forms lenticular aggregates up to 220.5 mm consisting of thin near-coplanar platelets up to 70701 m3 and associated with franklinite, gahnite, hetaerolite, zincochromite, ferricoronadite, baryte, As-rich fluorapatite, dolomite, Zn-bearing talc, almeidaite, hydroxycalcioroméite, zircon, quartz, and scheelite. In silicate-baryte zones of the metasomatic rock, uniaxial intergrowths of zincovelesite-6N6S with nežilovite are observed. The new mineral is opaque, black, with brownish-black streak. The lustre is strong submetallic to metallic. The micro-indentation hardness is 1118 kg/mm2 which corresponds to Mohs’ hardness ca. 6½. Zincovelesite-6N6S is brittle, with uneven fracture. No cleavage or parting is observed. The density calculated from the empirical formula is 5.158 g/cm3. In reflected light zincovelesite-6N6S is light grey. The reflectance values [Rmax/Rmin, % (, nm)] are: 17.1/13.4 (470), 16.5/12.8 (546), 16.2/12.6 (589), 15.6/12.2 (650). The IR spectrum shows the presence of OH groups. According to the Mössbauer spectrum, all iron is trivalent. The Mn K-edge XANES spectroscopy shows that Mn is predominantly or completely trivalent. The average chemical composition is (wt%; electron microprobe, H2O determined by gas chromatography of ignition products): MgO 0.97, CuO 0.50, ZnO 30.80, Al2O3 8.17, Mn2O3 21.31, Fe2O3 29.44, TiO2 5.28, Sb2O5 3.74, H2O 1.1, total 101.31. The empirical formula based on 16 O atoms is H1.05Zn3.26Mg0.21Cu0.05Fe3+3.18Mn3+2.32Al1.38Ti0.57Sb0.20O16. Zincovelesite-6N6S is trigonal, probable space group P-3m1, a = 5.902(2) Å, c = 55.86(1) Å, V = 1684.8(9) Å3, Z = 6. The strongest lines of the powder X-ray diffraction pattern [d, Å (I, %) (hkl)] are: 2.952 (62) (110), 2.881 (61) (1.0.16), 2.515 (100) (204), 2.493 (88) (1.1.12), 2.451 (39) (1.0.20), 1.690 (19) (304, 2.1.16), 1.572 (19) (2.0.28), 1.475 (29) (221). Zincovelesite-6N6S is the first Fe3+-dominant member of the högbomite supergroup and, thus, can be considered as a parent species of a new mineral group. The rootname velesite is given for the discovery locality near the city of Veles. [ DOI ]
