Feldspar & Pegmatite | Imerys

Feldspar minerals are essential components in igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks, to such an extent that the classification of a number of rocks is based on their feldspar content. Although highly present in igneous rocks like granite, commercial feldspar is generally mined from pegmatite or feldspathic sand deposits.

Feldspar thermometry in pegmatites: truth and consequences ...

Nov 29, 2019 · Abstract Temperatures of crystallization for all or portions of three thin granitic pegmatite dikes in southern California are derived from feldspar solvus thermometry, with supporting data from the K/Cs ratio of K-feldspar, the extent of Al/Si order in K-feldspar, and the texture of granophyre found along the margins of dikes.

Feldspars - all about the plagioclases and K-feldspars

Aug 11, 2018 · Pegmatites are definitely the most important feldspars source. Pegmatite is an extremely coarse grained rock of granitic composition which is usually pale in color. Pegmatites form veins and lenses and often have pockets full of excellent quality crystals.

GRANITIC PEGMATITES IN SRI LANKA: A CONCISE REVIEW …

Dec 10, 2020 · The partition coefficients among K-feldspar, quartz and melt dictate that the melt continues to accumulate the incompatible elements as the core is approached. The K-feldspar most enriched in Rb, Cs and Pb will be close to interface between the intermediate zone and the quartz core. Many bodies of granitic pegmatite contain a quartz core.

Pegmatites – Our Greatest Source of Gemstones | Geology ...

Oct 17, 2019 · The most distinguishing feature of pegmatites is the presence of extremely large sized crystals (e.g. gem-quality beryl measuring 55 x 18 x 16 cm in size and weighting 22 kg was extracted from Volyn pegmatite field, Ukraine). Additionally, pegmatites are also known to be a significant source of rare elements, such as Be, Nb, Ta, Sn, Li, Rb and Cs.

GEOCHEMISTRY OF FELDSPARS AND MUSCOVITE IN …

K-feldspar The composition of K-feldspar from three types of pegmatite is presented in Table 2 (K-feldspar is absent from type-IV pegmatites). Systematic chemical varia-tions among the feldspars from the different zones into a pegmatite body are absent. Hence, we will only con-sider the variations among the different types of peg-matite.

K-feldspar in the Froland pegmatites commonly has >13.0 wt.% K2O and can could thus serve as a valuable by-product. The Evje-Iveland pegmatites are smaller in size (mean about 10,000 t quartz), they are zoned with respect to quartz chemistry and their quartz has higher total trace element concentrations (mean 129±108 µgg-1) compared to ...
