Recrystallization rims in zircon (Valle d'Arbedo, Switzerland): An integrated cathodoluminescence, LA-ICP-MS, SHRIMP, and TEM study

Vonlanthen, Pierre; Fitz Gerald, John; Rubatto, Daniela; Hermann, Joerg


Recrystallization rims are a common feature of zircon crystals that underwent metamorphism. We present a microstructural and microchemical study of partially recrystallized zircon grains collected in polymetamorphic migmatites (Valle d'Arbedo, Ticino, Switzerland). The rims are bright in cathodo-luminescence (CL), with sharp and convex contacts characterized by inward-penetrating embayments transgressing igneous zircon cores. Laser ablation-inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry...[Show more]
