Using a synchrotron Mossbauer spectroscopy technique, Jackson et al., 2005 studied the electronic environments of the Fe ions in the ([Mg.sub.1-x][Fe.sub.x])Si[O.sub.3] (x=0.05 and 0.10) samples at pressures up to about 120 GPa and concluded that there are two kinds of [Fe.sup.2+] ions and one kind of Fe3+ ions (the so-called 'three-double' model) in the samples.
