Abstract

The high-pressure elastic behavior and structure evolution of a natural balliranoite, i.e. a mineral isotypic with cancrinite belonging to the davyne subgroup, (Na4.47Ca2.86K0.11)(Si5.96Al6.04O24)Cl2.03(CO3)0.78(SO4)0.33, a = 12.680(1) Å, c = 5.3141(5) Å and V = 739.9(1) Å3, S.G. P63, have been studied by means of in-situ single-crystal X-ray diffraction with a diamond anvil cell, up to 6.77(2) GPa. No evidence of phase transition, structure collapse or change of the compressional behavior have been observed within the pressure range investigated. The unit-cell volume evolution as function of pressure has been fitted with a second-order Birch-Murnaghan equation of state (BM EoS), yielding the following refined parameters: V0 = 735.5(7) Å3, KV0 = 48.1(8) GPa. Fitting of the a vs. P and c vs. P data with linearized third-order BM-EoS leads to the following elastic anisotropy at ambient conditions: Ka0:Kc0 = 1.35:1. The P-induced structure evolution of balliranoite is mainly governed by the framework re-arrangement through tilting of quasi-rigid tetrahedra. A comparative analysis of the elastic behavior and of the structure deformation mechanisms of balliranoite and cancrinite at high-pressure are carried out.
