Chapter 8 Mineral Quartz
Let's look at the mineral quartz, which has a chemical formula of SiO 2, to
demonstrate the various ways of reporting composition.

SiO2 has 3 apfu: 1 atom of Si and 2 atoms of O. That means that on an
atom basis, it is 33% Si (

The extensive substitution between Fe and Mg is only allowed because the
cations of these two elements are pretty similar.
Both of those cations have a +2 charge and both have a similar ionic
