Lawsonite geochemistry and stability - implication for trace element and water cycles in subduction zones

Martin, L.A.J.; Hermann, Joerg; Gauthiez-Putallaz, Laure; Whitney, Donna; Vitale-Brovarone, Alberto; Fornash, Katherine; Evans, Noreen J


This contribution reviews the existing data on lawsonite stability and trace element geochemistry, and provides new data for metabasaltic and metasedimentary (quartzite) rocks from New Caledonia, Turkey and California. Lawsonite is a major host of REE, Sr, U, Th and Pb in basaltic compositions. Trace element-rich lawsonite also occurs in metasedimentary rocks, in which comparatively fewer phases compete for trace elements than in metabasaltic rocks. Trace element patterns in lawsonite are...[Show more]
