Oscillatory zoning and trace element incorporation in hydrothermal minerals: insights from calcite growth experiments

Barker, Shaun; Cox, Stephen


Oscillatory zoning and fine-scale variations in trace element chemistry are commonly observed in hydrothermal minerals. It has been suggested that fine-scale chemical variations are caused by extrinsic changes in the parent hydrothermal system, such as varying fluid composition, pressure or temperature, as well as changes in mineral growth rate. In this study, LA-ICP-MS (laser ablation, inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer) analyses were carried out on calcite crystals grown in...[Show more]
