Infrared Spectroscopy of Quartz and Feldspar in Alpine Hydrothermal Veins
With the aim of discerning fluid conditions present during hydrothermal activity associated with Alpine metamorphism, we present new results on the abundance and distribution of hydrous impurities in co-crystallizing ...
Competing Diffusion Pathways in High-Temperature Metamorphic Quartz
We present spectroscopic analyses that characterize the distribution and abundance of hydroxyl-bearing impurities within a single quartz crystal grown in hydrothermal fluid. We focus on a gemmy quartz crystal collected in ...
The Distribution of Hydrous Impurities in Quartz : The Role of Twinning
Quartz crystals have been studied since ancient times by scientists and natural philosophers attempting to unlock the mysteries behind their aesthetic appearance and cryptic morphological properties. Previous studies ...
