Paulingite, a zeolite, has a framework structure consisting of 2016 atoms (672 silicon or aluminum and 1344 oxygen) which are in a cubic cell with an edge of length 35.093 Å. The framework has several features in common with the synthetic zeolites Linde A and ZK-5; the main channels are of similar size. We have also located most of the cations and water molecules inside the frame-work.
