Based on the Mössbauer data of minerals extracted from theMineral: Data Handbook, a consistent set of best values for the isomeric shifts and the quadrupole splittings for ferrous and ferric ions in the cis and trans sites of phyllosilicate is given. The parameters, in particular the quadrupole splitting values, can be used in an analogous way for the identification of minerals as the Hanawalt and Fink methods of powder x-ray diffraction data where each mineral is identified by a set of unique Mössbauer data.
