Summary:A phengite 3T from the Doira-Maira massif, Italian western Alps, with composition K0.96Na0.01Al1.44Mg0.56(Si3.59Al0.41)O10(OH)2, has been investigated using neutron powder diffraction. In the octahedral sheet, Al tends to order into the M2 site, in accordance with measurements made earlier using the time-of-flight technique, whereas the Al/Si tetrahedral ordering (i.e. Si fully into the T1 site) is at variance with previous results. These discrepancies are attributed to the presence of talc impurities (∼ 6%) in the previous sample. [R.A.H.]
