Zircon trace element geochemistry: partitioning with garnet and the link between U-Pb ages and metamorphism

Rubatto, Daniela


With the aim to link zircon composition with paragenesis and thus metamorphic conditions, zircons from eclogite- and granulite-facies rocks were analysed for trace elements using LA-ICP-MS and SHRIMP ion microprobe. Metamorphic zircons from these different settings display a large variation in trace element composition. In the granulites, zircon overgrowths formed in equilibrium with partial melt and are similar to magmatic zircon in terms of high Y, Hf and P content, steep heavy-enriched REE...[Show more]
