Summary:The Raman spectrum of metavivianite is broad and more closely resembles that of ferro/ferristrunzite than vivianite, which is not unexpected as both minerals are triclinic. Metavivianite is characterized by a broad profile in the hydroxyl stretching region with bands at 3368 and 3133 cm-1. The width of the bands indicates that the structure of metavivianite is disordered. In the PO stretching region bands are observed at 1123, 1060, 1005 and 958 cm-1 and are assigned to the stretching modes. Partially oxidized vivianites are characterized by a sharp OH stretching band at around 3480 cm-1 in the Raman spectrum. It is suggested that metavivianite is a transitional oxidation phase between the vivianite and ferro/ferristrunzite end-members. [R.A.H.]
