Garronite: change in nomenclature After the approval of the new mineral garronite-Na (IMA 2015-015, see above), the name ‘‘garronite’’ becomes a series name, and the mineral formerly referred to as garronite is renamed garronite-Ca. CNMNC Newsletter No. 26, August 2015, page 947; Mineralogical Magazine, 79, 941 - 947.
