O(3) = F. Above, we note that there is a hydrogen bond to the O(7) anion. Where O(3) = F, this hydrogen bond is no longer present, and as a consequence, the valence-sum rule (Brown 1981, 2002; Hawthorne 1994, 2006) predicts that the T(1)-O(7) distance should be slightly shorter in luorotremolite than in tremolite.
