Title: Materials Data on KCa2Be2Al(Si2O5)6 by Materials Project

Abstract

KCa2Be2Al(Si2O5)6 crystallizes in the orthorhombic Ccc2 space group. The structure is three-dimensional. K1+ is bonded in a 12-coordinate geometry to twelve O2- atoms. There are a spread of K–O bond distances ranging from 2.95–3.08 Å. Ca2+ is bonded to six O2- atoms to form distorted CaO6 octahedra that share corners with six SiO4 tetrahedra, an edgeedge with one AlO4 tetrahedra, and edges with two BeO4 tetrahedra. There are a spread of Ca–O bond distances ranging from 2.31–2.49 Å. There are two inequivalent Be2+ sites.
