Diffusion and solubilities of Rh, Ru and Ir in olivine and spinel

Zhukova, Irina; O'Neill, Hugh; Campbell, Ian; Fiorentini, Marco; Kilburn, Matt; Guagliardo, Paul


The true solubilities of highly siderophile elements in silicate and oxide minerals may be difficult to measure because of their low abundances and the tendency of these elements to occur as minute inclusions or “micronuggets”. In order to mitigate this latter problem, we present a new approach that makes use of the solid-state diffusion of such elements into pre-existing crystals. The diffusion of Rh, Ru and Ir was measured in San Carlos olivine, and synthetic monocrystalline forsterite and...[Show more]
