U-Pb dating of magmatic zircon and metamorphic baddeleyite in the Ligurian eclogites (Voltri Massif, Western Alps)

Rubatto, Daniela; Scambelluri, Marco


U-Pb geochronology with ion microprobe (SHRIMP) analysis has been carried out on eclogite-facies rocks of the Beigua Unit, an ophiolitic slice of the Voltri Massif, Western Alps. The investigated samples are eclogites and high-pressure metasomatic rocks (metarodingites and centimetre-sized Ti-clinohumite-bearing dykes). Zircon contained in an eclogitic metagabbro and a metarodingite preserves magmatic zoning patterns and trace element compositions. The zircon ages of 160 ± 1 and 161 ± 3 Ma are...[Show more]
