Zemann) Abstract Chemical analyses of tourmaline crystals from a small pegmatite body, nearby the Stoffhütte, Koralpe (Styria, Austria), exhibit a pronounced excess in boron, expressed by the simplified formula (Nao.43Cao.24Q0.33) (Al2.43Lio.33Qo.28)Alö(B03)3(Bi.23 Si4.g7 Oi8)[O0.64(OH)3 36]. A substantial substitution of silicon by boron in the tetrahedral position is in agreement with an occupation refinement in single crystal X-ray work: the average (Si, B )-0 bond length measures A. This is the first example for a substitution of silicon by boron in a natural tourmaline, that could be verified by crystallographic methods.

Introduction A survey on tourmalines from Austrian localities, including lattice constants, semiquantitative EDX-analyses, as well as the compilation of morphologic and genetic aspects (E rtl, 1995) drew attention upon the lattice constants of light green, blue or even colourless tourmalines from the Koralpe, Styria, Austria (cf. M o se r and P o st l in N ie d e r m a y r et al., 1986); P o st l and M o se r, 1987; P o st l, 1988). The small values of the lattice constants [ag= (1) A, cg= 7.061(1) A] and preliminary chemical analyses led to the assumption that the [9 + 1] coordinated alkaline and/ or alkaline-earth-position in the structure is unoccupied. The tentative formula AlßA l^bc ^SiöO ^O, OH)4 was proposed. But the quantitative chemical analyses of the present study show appreciable contents of sodium and calcium, hence the composition of the investigated material is close to an olenite end-member tourmaline (seetable 1). The coherency of lattice constants and chemical composition was the reason for further investigations by a detailed structure determination. The average size of these olenite crystals varies from 2 to 5 mm, some aggregates of parallel arranged crystals are up to 25 mm in length. The larger individuums are sometimes intergrown with schorl. Experimental The chemical composition of the present tourmaline was determined by atomic absorption spectroscopy for lithium, the Karl-Fischer titration techniques for H20 and electron microprobe analysis for all other elements. The following standards were used for the microprobe analyses (elements and lines in parentheses): jadeite, (Na Ka), K-glass (K Ka), topaz (F Ka), pyrore (Mg Ka, Al Ka, Si Ka), andradite (Ca Ka, Fe Ka), spessartine (Mn Ka), rutile (Ti Ka) and dravite (B Ka). The operating conditions for fluorine and boron were 6 kev accelerating voltage, 30 na beam current, all other elements were measured with a beam of 15 kev and 15 na. For both conditions a beam diameter of 8 im was used. Scans around the B Ka line using a PC2 pseudo diffracting crystal proved identical line positions and shapes for boron in both the dravite and the olenite sample. The B Ka-peak of our tourmaline was about 20% higher than that of dravite. The analyses were corrected by applying the Cameca Investigations Akademie on Olenite d. Wissenschaften with Excess Wien; Boron download from unter the Koralpe, Styria, Austria 5 PAP procedure. Special care was taken to use identical material for the microprobe analyses, the lithium- and H20-determ ination. As the measured boron content was unusually high and the silicon content was unusually low for a tourm aline, the microprobe analyses were repeated Table 1.

E r t l et a l. Akademie d. Wissenschaften Wien; download unter several times. No significant changes were noticed. The totals of the analyses were slightly too high (see Table 1). Microprobe analyses of boron may be inaccurate owing to several factors (B astin and H e ijlig e r s, 1986, M cg ee and A n o v it z, 1996). Assuming that only for boron the obtained value was too high, its analytical value may be reduced to an amount to reach a sum of constituents of 100%. Even then the boron content is still too high for a normal olenite. A partial substitution of Si by B in natural tourmalines was proposed by B arton (1969) and by S e r d y u c h e n k o (1980) previously, but only on the basis of chemical analyses, and not corroborated by structure determinations. The quality of the crystal used for structure refinement was checked by film methods (Weissenberg type), using Cu-Ka radiation.

In all calculations complex neutral scattering functions were used and the Lorentz and polarization effects were corrected in usual ways. ( Fo - 1Fc ) lists are deposited at the Institut für Mineralogie und Kristallographie der Universität Wien. The refined atomic parameters and anisotropic displacement factors are given in Table 3, selected interatomic distances and bond angles in Table 4. The sum of occupation factors for positions Al(l)/Li(l), Al(2)/Li(2), and Si/B(l) are constrained constant with multiplicity 0.5,1.0 and 1.0 respectively, for position Na/Ca they are unconditionally free variables. Discussion The combined results of chemical analyses and X-ray investigations of the tourmaline under discussion with the formula (Nao.43 Cao.24Go.33XAl2.43 I-io.33Go.28)Al6(B03)3(B1 23 Si4.8? Oi8)[C*o.64(OH)3 36] convincingly show (contrary to the preliminary note by E rtl 1995). a) that the X position is partly occupied by Na and Ca (and by traces of K) atoms, and b) that the Si position contains appreciable amounts of B. The ratio B/Si calculated from chemical analyses with ~ 0.25 differs considerably from the ratio determined by the X-ray work with ~ The reason for this discrepancy might be an analytical error in the B determination (too high values) by microprobe analyses already mentioned above. Further it seems to be worth mentioning that from diagrams where the (Si-O) bond length [A] is plotted against the Si content [apfu = atoms per formula unit] (H aw t h o rn e 1996,1997) for our experimental ((Si, B )-0) = 1.610Ä a value of ~ 5.70 Si [apfu] is deducible. Our chemical analyses as well as the least squares refinement of the occupancy (Table 3) indicate for Si [apfu] a value The reasons for this discrepancy between (Si-O) [Ä] and Si [apfu] are not clear, but our experimental values for Si [apfu] 5.25 and (Si-O) = 1.610Ä seem to be well established. Vacancies and partial Al substitution of Si-position cannot be excluded by the X-ray work. Acknowledgements The authors thank Dr. P.
