Alex Strekeisen - I vetrini della mia fantasia. Amphiboles - W X 2 Y 5 Z 8 O 22 (OH,F) 2 Amphibole, from the Greek amphibolos, meaning "ambiguous", was named by the famous French crystallographer and mineralogist René-Just Haüy () in allusion to the great variety of composition and appearance shown by this mineral group.

Amphiboles have long been key players in metamorphic petrology. The concept of facies was developed for rocks of basaltic composition (Eskola , ; Fyfe et al. ), and within this concept, amphiboles had a leading by: EENS Mineralogy Tulane University Prof. Stephen A. Nelson Inosilicates (Pyroxenes and Amphiboles) Inosilicates (Single Chain Silicates) The single chain silicates have a basic structural unit consisting of linked SiO4 tetrahedra that each share 2 of their File Size: KB. The amphiboles in this rock are anhedral to subhedral with an average grain size of mm and a maximum size of mm. Mangani-dellaventuraite occurs together with ferri-leakeite and potassic-mangani-leakeite, commonly overgrowing aegirine-augite (blanfordite), and is the least abundant of these three amphiboles. Amphibole, any of a group of common rock-forming silicate minerals.. General considerations. Amphiboles are found principally in metamorphic and igneous rocks. They occur in many metamorphic rocks, especially those derived from mafic igneous rocks (those containing dark-coloured ferromagnesian minerals) and siliceous oles also are important constituents in a variety of plutonic.

Practical Aspects of Mineral Thermobarometry Amphiboles Structure and sites. The amphibole structure is related to that of the pyroxenes, and consists of double chains of tetrahedra along the c axis, a pair of chains with apices facing each other forming a broad I-beam.

Robinson, in Clinical Respiratory Medicine (Fourth Edition), Pathogenesis. Asbestos is a term used to describe a group of mineral fibers of two major types: serpentine and amphibole. Chrysotile is the most common serpentine asbestos used commercially and has long, curly and pliable fibers. The amphiboles, which are short, straight, and stiff, include .   Collector's Guide to the Amphibole Group covers an important, beautiful set of crystals--the amphiboles--and organizes them in such a way that mineral collectors will understand their properties and structural features.
