The Al 5 Sb 3 O 14 (OH) 2 quaternary compound (mineral bahianite), which crystallizes in the monoclinic structure with the lattice parameters a = 940.6 ± 0.6, b = 1154.1 ± 0.8, and c = 441.0 ± 0.3 pm and β = 90.94 ± 0.03° and calculated and experimental densities of 5.26 and 4.89–5.46 g·cm−3, respectively, is formed in the Al–H–O–Sb system (Moore et al. 1978; Fleischer et al. 1979).
