{Lasnierite, (Ca,Sr)(Mg,Fe)(2)Al(PO4)(3), is a new phosphate mineral from Mt. Ibity, close to Itremo, central Madagascar. The mineral was found as inclusions accompanying blue lazulite and many other minerals in blue metaquartzite occasionally used as a gemstone or ornamental stone. The crystals were very small and embedded in quartz so that they could not be extracted mechanically, precluding any "classical" X-ray diffraction on either single-crystal or powder sample. Hence, Focused Ion Beam (FIB) lamellae were extracted and the structure was successfully solved and refined using the recently proposed method of precession electron diffraction tomography (PEDT) associated to dynamical refinement. This underlines the efficiency of this new method for defining mineral species on volumes too small to be manipulated by classical means of X-ray diffraction. Accompanying minerals include various phosphates, sulfates, oxides and silicates. Lasnierite occurs as transparent, near-colourless bladed crystals up to 120 x 60 mu m in section. Only five crystals have been identified yet in our samples. The empirical formula, based on wavelength dispersive spectrometry (WDS) electron microprobe microprobe analyses and calculated on 12 (O+F) atoms per formula unit, is (Ca0.59Sr0.37)E-0.96(Mg1.42Feo.54)(Sigma 1.96) Al-0.87(P2.99Si0.01)(Sigma 3.00)(O11.41F0.59)(Sigma 12) LA-ICPMS shows that concentrations of Li, Be and B are below the detection limit. The calculated density based on the empirical formula is 3.162 g cm(-3). Lasnierite is orthorhombic, space group Pbcn, with unit-cell parameters: a = 6.2771(3) angstrom
