American Mineralogist (Am Min), is the flagship journal of the Mineralogical Society of America (MSA), continuously published since 1916. Preparations have already begun for our 100th anniversary celebrations, stay tuned! Am Min is home to some of the most important advances in the Earth Sciences. Our mission is a continuance of this heritage: to provide readers with reports on original scientific research, both fundamental and applied, with far reaching implications and far ranging appeal. Topics of interest cover all aspects of planetary evolution, and biological and atmospheric processes mediated by solid-state phenomena. These include but are not limited to mineralogy & crystallography, high- and low-temperature geochemistry, petrology, geofluids, bio-geochemistry, bio-mineralogy, synthetic materials of relevance to the Earth and planetary sciences, and breakthroughs in analytical methods of any of the aforementioned.

Figure 2. 0kl layer of the “sillimullite” crystal calculated
from all 2D frames of the full data set. View parallel to a*, c*
pointing down, b* pointing right. Inset in the upper right with
enlarged central area: The smaller gray frame refers to the
“sillimullite” reciprocal unit cell, the larger white one to mullite,
indicating the doubling of c in “sillimullite”.
