Exsolution of thortveitite, yttrialite, and xenotime during low-temperature recrystallization of zircon from New Caledonia, and their significance for trace element incorporation in zircon

Spandler, Carl; Hermann, Joerg; Rubatto, Daniela


Recrystallized zircon grains in a phengite-epidote-chlorite schist from north-eastern New Caledonia contain as inclusions a mineral assemblage consisting of celadonite, kaolinite, quartz, Fe-oxy-hydroxide, smectite, chlorite, xenotime-(Y), thortveitite, yttrialite, and allanite-(Ce). This assemblage formed during low-temperature (<100 °C) seafloor alteration of a plagioclase-rich mafic rock and represents the first documented evidence of this alteration event in the high-P belt of northeastern...[Show more]
