Abstract (in english)
   Wet-chemical analyses (41) of tourmaline from granitic pegmatites (barren, barren-pocket, beryl, lepidolite types) in the Moldanubicum, Czech Republic revealed that members of the oxy-subgroup ĄV common oxy-schorl, minor oxy-dravite and rare oxy-foitite are more abundant relative to the relevant members of the hydroxy-subgroup. The primary substitution mechanisms in tourmaline show combination of heterovalent substitutions: YAlWO YR2+-1W(OH)-1, XďYAl2WO XNa-1YR2+-2W(OH)-1, XďYAl XNa-1YR2+-1 and Xď W(OH) XNa-1WO-1, and homovalent substitutions: Fe2+Mg-1 and (OH)F-1. Tourmalines with the chemistry expressed by the general formula X(Na0.5ď0.5)Y(R2+2Al)ZAl6(BO3)3Si6O18V(OH)3W(O0.5OH0.5) crystallized in very similar PT conditions in granitic systems saturated on Na, Al, Si and H2O, it indicates the importance of short-range order requirements on tourmaline chemical composition.
