Modulated structure of nepheline

What is it about?

The incommensurately modulated structure of a natural nepheline of composition K0.54Na3.24Ca0.03Al3.84Si4.16O16 has been described within the superspace approach.

Why is it important?

The modulated structure can be understood as a combination of occupational and displacive modulations to the atoms.
