Zr-in-rutile thermometry in HP/UHP eclogites from Western China

Zhang, Guibin; Ellis, David; Christy, Andrew; Zhang, Lifei; Song , Shuguang


Four Zr-in-rutile thermometry calibrations are applied to eclogites from Western China. Here, we show that if rutile grows in equilibrium with Qtz and Zrn, and is isolated inside garnet, it preserves its Zr composition and does not undergo compositional change due to cation exchange with the host garnet. It thus preserves the composition for the P-T conditions of its formation and the growth zoning of the host garnet. For the HP/UHP metamorphic temperature, the Tomkins et al. (J Metamorph Geol...[Show more]
