Time-temperature evolution of microtextures and contained fluids in a plutonic alkali feldspar during heating

Parsons, Ian; Fitz Gerald, John; Lee, James K W; Ivanic, Tim; Golla-Schindler, Ute


Microtextural changes brought about by heating alkali feldspar crystals from the Shap granite, northern England, at atmospheric pressure, have been studied using transmission and scanning electron microscopy. A typical unheated phenocryst from Shap is composed of about 70 vol% of tweed orthoclase with strain-controlled coherent or semicoherent micro- and crypto-perthitic albite lamellae, with maximum lamellar thicknesses <1 μm. Semicoherent lamellae are encircled by nanotunnel loops in two...[Show more]
