Petrology of an apatite-rich layer in the Finero phlogopite�peridotite, Italian Western Alps; implications for evolution of a metasomatising agent

Morishita, Tomoaki; Arai, Shoji; Tamura, Akihiro


We discovered an apatite-rich layer in the Finero phlogopite-peridotite body, Western Alps. Fine-grained apatite grains are concentrated, up to 10 modal percent locally, to form a lens within or adjacent to a thin layer, < 1 cm in thickness, consisting of very fine-grained minerals of olivine, orthopyroxene, spinel, amphibole, phlogopite, sulfide minerals and apatite with small amount of carbonate and clinopyroxene. In the thin layer, apatite-rich part is richer in amphibole and carbonate...[Show more]
