Glaucophane schists and associated rocks from Sifnos (Cyclades, Greece): New constraints on the P-T evolution from oxidized systems

Groppo, Chiara; Forster, Margaret; Lister, Gordon; Compagnoni, Roberto


The island of Sifnos (Cyclades, Greece) is famous for its spectacular blueschist-facies rocks and eclogites. Their very well preserved high-pressure assemblages are characterized by the occurrence of Fe+ 3-rich minerals such as aegirine-rich pyroxene, riebeckite-rich amphibole, magnetite and deerite. Therefore, the common model system NCFMASH (Na2O-CaO-FeO-MgO-Al2O3-SiO2 -H2O), in which all iron is assumed to be ferrous, is not sufficient to completely model these highly oxidized assemblages....[Show more]
