The title compound, dicalcium nonaoxidodistannate(IV)dialuminate, is the second example which crystallizes in the isotypic structure of a pyroxene silicate, Na2Ti2Si2O9 (ramsayite). 1[Sn2O8] chains and pyroxene-type 1[Al2O6] chains are formed along the b axis by sharing O atoms. The Ca atoms are situated in the resulting channels and exhibit a coordination number of 7.
