Garnet re-equilibration by coupled dissolution-reprecipitation: evidence from textural, major element and oxygen isotope zoning of 'cloudy' garnet

Martin, L.A.J.; Ballevre, Michel; Boulvais, Philippe; Halfpenny, Angela; Vanderhaeghe, O; Duchene, S; Deloule, Etienne


The analysis of texture, major element and oxygen isotope compositions of cloudy garnet crystals from a metapelite sampled on Ikaria Island (Greece) is used to assess the model of growth and re-equilibration of these garnet crystals and to reconstruct the pressure-temperature-fluid history of the sample. Garnet crystals show complex textural and chemical zoning. Garnet cores (100-200μm) are devoid of fluid inclusions. They are characterized by growth zoning demonstrated by a bell-shaped profile...[Show more]
