    www.mindat.org/min-1528.html Enstatite-Ferrosilite Series Note: The name has been used in the past to describe the monoclinic dimorph clinoferrosilite, with the orthorhombic dimorph having the name orthoferrosilite so be careful when reading older texts.
  • Enstatite - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferrosilite Enstatite is a mineral; the magnesium endmember of the pyroxene silicate mineral series enstatite (MgSiO 3) – ferrosilite (FeSiO 3).The magnesium rich members of the solid solution series are common rock-forming minerals found in igneous and metamorphic rocks. The intermediate composition, (Mg,Fe)SiO 3, has historically been known as hypersthene, although this name has been formally ...

  • Ferrosilite (FeSiO3): Synthesis at High Pressures and ...

    science.sciencemag.org/content/144/3614/73 The FeSiO3 (ferrosilite) end member of the pyroxene series is not known as a pure mineral in nature and cannot be synthesized at atmospheric pressure. It is readily synthesized, however, at pressures from 18 to 45 kb and temperatures from 1150°to 1400°C. Its refractive indices approach those predicted for ferrosilite and it melts incongruently to an Fe, SiO4-rich liquid plus quartz.

    www.metaphysicalityinc.com/2014/02/hypersthene-properties.html There is no iron contained in pure enstatite, and no magnesium in pure ferrosilite. Hypersthene is the name applied when both minerals are present in significant amounts.” Even though the above is accurate, within many modern mineral references the term hypersthene is not used. The reason for this is because it is no longer recognized by the IMA.
