© 2014, Pleiades Publishing, Ltd. A new mineral, zvyaginite, a member of the epistolite group, has been found at Mt. Malyi Punkaruaiv, Lovozero Alkaline Complex, Kola Peninsula, Russia. It occurs in a hydrothermally altered peralkaline pegmatite and is associated with ussingite, microcline, aegirine, sphalerite, vigrishinite, and sauconite. Zvyaginite forms rectangular or irregular-shaped lamellae up to 0.1 × 1 × 2 cm in size when flattened [001]. The mineral is translucent to transparent and colorless, pearly-white, yellowish brownish, pale pink, or violet pink. The luster is nacreous on crystal faces and greasy on broken surfaces. Its Mohs’ hardness is 2.5–3. Zvyaginite is brittle. The cleavage parallel to {001} is perfect. Dmeas = 2.88(3), Dcalc = 2.94 g/cm3. The mineral is optically biaxial (−), α = 1.626(5), β = 1.714(3), γ = 1.740(5), 2Vmeas = 45(15)°, 2Vcalc = 55°. The IR spectrum is given. Chemical composition is as follows (wt %; average of five point analyses; H2O was determined using the modified P
