Abstract

The cerite supergroup is established and includes the cerite group (silicates) and merrillite group (phosphates). Cerite-group minerals are cerite-(Ce), ferricerite-(La), aluminocerite-(Ce) and taipingite-(Ce). The merrillite group is subdivided into two subgroups: merrillite (merrillite, ferromerrillite, keplerite and matyhite) and whitlockite (whitlockite, strontiowhitlockite, wopmayite and hedegaardite). Cerite-(La) has been renamed ferricerite-(La). The new nomenclature has been approved by the International Mineralogical Association Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification.
