 Title    Probable Phase Composition of the Mineral in Bone  
 Abstract    Formulas proposed for the mineral of bone were reviewed. Literature data were collected where Ca, P, Na, Mg and C 0 3 are determined in the same samples. These data were analyzed for their conformity to the above mentioned formulas. According to this analysis Mg is contained in a phase having the Ca/P of magnesium whitlockite within the limits o f error. Na is contained in a carbonated calcium phosphate phase which in analogy with synthetic systems must have the apatite structure. The Ca/P ratio o f the remaining "rest phase" is 2. This is based on the composi­ tion of 101 bone mineral samples taken from fishes, reptiles, amphibians, birds and mammals. The C 0 3 content of the bone samples agrees with the formula Ca8 (P 0 4)4 (C 0 3) (OH)2 • x H20 for the "rest phase" within the limits of experimental error. Such a compound has, however, not been found in synthetic systems. Human bone contains about 15% magnesium whitlockite, 25% of the Na and C 0 3 containing apatite and the rest is the carbonated calcium phosphate with Ca/P = 2. It is presumed that this compound has a structure similar to that o f octo calcium phosphate and that most o f the citrate ions which always occur in bone mineral samples are in­ corporated in that phase.

 Abstract    In clear, blue, transparent bipyramidal crystals of the rare mineral benitoite, BaTiSi30 9, para­ magnetic defects have been investigated by electron paramagnetic resonance at room temperature and 9.43 GHz. They are attributed to Sn3+ and Fe3 + . A pair of satellites recorded for a wide angular rage around B0 || c (~40°) and a relative intensity of ~ 13% to the central signal is most likely due to hyperfine interaction with 117Sn and 119Sn isotopes. Attempts to bleach the colour of the crystal were unsuccessful.
