Other compounds with this structure

  • FeSiO3 (ferrosilite) and CoSiO3 (Co–pyroxene)

  • Enstatite (or properly orthoenstatite) is an end point of orthopyroxene, XYSi2O6, where $X$ and $Y$ are small–radius divalent cations. If either $X$ or $Y$ is replaced by a transition metal the system becomes a monoclinic clinopyroxene, in space group $C2/c$ #15.
