Rare earth element evolution and migration in plagiogranites: a record preserved in epidote and allanite of the Troodos ophiolite

Anenburg, Michael; Katzir, Yaron; Rhede, Dieter; Jöns, Niels; Bach, Wolfgang

Description

Plagiogranites from the Troodos ophiolite in Cyprus are occasionally epidotised, either partially or completely. Epidotisation phenomena include replacement of pre-existing minerals and filling of miarolitic cavities. In addition to epidote, miarolites in one plagiogranite body (located near the village of Spilia) contain coexisting ferriallanite-(Ce) and allanite-(Y). Textural and geochemical evidence indicates that late-stage REE-enriched granitic melt facilitated crystallisation of...[Show more]
