The heat capacity of 11 different compositions of the low structural state plagioclase binary was measured between 5 and 773 K. The results are compared to those obtained from synthetic high structural state samples investigated in a previous study and obtained from a heat-treated natural sample of this study. The heat capacity of anorthite samples with slightly different order parameters shows large differences at ~500 K, where the Ibar1-Pbar1 phase transition occurs, which affects petrological calculations. At T = 298.15 K, the vibrational entropy versus composition behaviour of the low structural state plagioclases is almost ideal, in contrast to the high structural state plagioclases with positive excess vibrational entropies. At higher temperatures, the low structural state plagioclases show a negative deviation from ideal vibrational entropy composition behaviour in the Na-rich region.
