Abstract X-ray single-crystal structure refinements on natural roedderite from Bellerberg (Eifel district, FRG), (Mg4.66Fe0.12Mn0.10T0.01)Na1.15K1.0Si12O30, lead to an ordered Na arrangement which reduces the space group from P6/mcc to P62c. All other structural positions maintain a P6/mcc pseudo-symmetry.
