A List of Carbonate-Bearing Minerals
Table IV: Carbonate-Bearing Minerals with Multiple Other Anions

L. Bruce Railsback, Department of Geology, University of Georgia
with the kind help of Dr. Joseph A. Mandarino of the Royal Ontario Museum

These tables are intended to list of all known carbonate-bearing minerals for which names have been approved by the International Mineralogical Association's Commission on New Minerals and New Mineral Names. Table IV lists the carbonate bearing minerals that contain two or more other anions, such as halides, sulfate, borate, arsenate, arsenite, phosphate, or silicate . If you spot an error or a missing mineral, or if you have some other comment or query, please contact Bruce Railsback.

Other options:
Introduction to these tables.
Table I: The pure carbonate minerals.
Table II: The carbonate-bearing minerals with chloride, sulfate, or fluoride.
Table III: The carbonate-bearing minerals with phosphate, borate, arsenate, or silicate.
Table V: Recently recognized carbonate-bearing minerals.

Under each of the following headings, minerals are listed in order of increasing charge on the most highly charged cation.

1 Notes for Railsback's use. "MA" Indicates a carbonate-bearing mineral with multiple other anions and thus one listed in the last section of the table.

2 For minerals that post-date Clark's (1993) Hey's Mineral Index, volume and page on which they are reported in American Mineralogist (or other publication as noted).

3 Column number.row number.mineral number in Figure 1 of Railsback's 1999 paper on "Patterns in the compositions, properties, and geochemistry of carbonate minerals" (Carbonates and Evaporites, v. 14, p. 1-20).
