Abstract

Nikmelnikovite, Ca12Fe2+Fe\(_{3}^{{3 + }}\)Al3(SiO4)6(OH)20, a new mineral from the Kovdor massif (Kola Peninsula, Russia), is described. It is the first trigonal representative of the garnet supergroup. The mineral is named in honor of Academician Nikolai Nikolaevich Melnikov (1938–2018), an outstanding Soviet and Russia mining engineer, long-time (1981–2015) director of the Mining Institute of the Kola Science Center, Russian Academy of Sciences.
