Feldspar Group Minerals Types, Properties,

2018-4-22  Compositions of Feldspar Group Minerals. This group of minerals includes tectosilicates. Compositions of foremost elements in commonplace feldspars may be expressed in terms of 3 endmembers: potassium feldspar (K-spar) endmember KAlSi3O8, albite endmember NaAlSi3O8, anorthite endmember CaAl2Si2O8.

What group is feldspar in? – Mvorganizing

2019-2-12  What group is feldspar in? In the classification of igneous rocks of the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS), the feldspars are treated as two groups: the alkali feldspars and the plagioclase feldspars. The alkali feldspars include orthoclase, microcline, sanidine, anorthoclase, and the two-phase intermixtures called perthite.

2019-3-30  The group itself has over 20 recognized members (Table 1) with these minerals either falling under the Alkali-feldspar or Plagioclase-feldspar subheadings. Feldspars are tectosilicates and have a monoclinic or triclinic symmetry. The three main mineral end members of this group are Anorthite (CaAl 2 Si 2 O 8), Albite (NaAlSi 3 O 8) and Orthoclase (KAlSi 3 O 8
