Modulated incommensurate crystal structure of lazurite

What is it about?

The three-dimensionally modulated incommensurate crystal structure of lazurite was solved within the cubic system with the unit-cell parameter a[cub] = 9.077(1) Å and the (3+2)-dimensional superspace group Pnn2 (q1,q2) under the assumption of a twin model consisting of three orthorhombic components related by a threefold axis along the [111] direction.

Why is it important?

The structure was refined with the isotropic thermal parameters.
