Short communication: near- and mid-infrared spectroscopy of the lithium-bearing amphibole holmquistite from Barraute, Canada
Kloprogge, J. Theo, Duong, Loc V., Martens, Wayde N., Frost, Ray L., & Visser, Diederik (2006) Short communication: near- and mid-infrared spectroscopy of the lithium-bearing amphibole holmquistite from Barraute, Canada. Journal of Near Infrared Spectroscopy, 14(3), pp. 209-212.
The mid- and near-infrared spectra of holmquistite, a lithium-containing orthorhombic amphibole, from Barraute (Quebec, Canada) has been measured The OH-stretching region is characterised by bands around 3660, 3645, 3629 and 3613 cm-1 assigned to (3Mg)-OH, (2Mg + Fe2+)-OH, (Mg + 2Fe2+)-OH and (3Fe2+)-OH, respectively. Based on the ratio between the 3645 and 3660 cm-1 bands Fe2+/(Fe2+ + Mg2+) ratios in the M1 and M3 sites were determined to be in the range between 0.35 and 0.45. In the near-infrared region two times four bands were observed associated with the four possible combination modes of the four M-OH stretching and bending modes around 4029, 4193, 4323 and 4400 cm-1 and with the four overtones of M-OH stretching modes around 7055, 7091, 7123 and 7155 cm-1.
