Epidote Mineral Information Photos And Facts Gem Epidote

Composition, Structure and Associated Minerals The name epidote is derived from the Greek, epidosis, increase, the base of the prism having one side longer than the other. In chemical composition they are silicates of aluminium, iron, calcium, and hydrogen, with minor amounts of manganese, magnesium, cerium, etc.

Epidote The Mineral Epidote Information And Pictures

Two uncommon members of the Epidote group are Epidote-(Pb) (which is more popularly known as Hancockite), and Epidote-(Sr). Though often regarded as varieties of Epidote, these two forms are classified by the IMA as individual mineral species. Epidote is also almost identical in composition to Clinozoisite but lacks significant iron in its structure.

Epidote Group An Overview Sciencedirect Topics

The Epidote Group. The epidote group of minerals has a chemical composition based on the idealized formula for the eponymous mineral epidote Ca2 Al 2 Fe 3 Si 2 O 7 SiO 4 O (OH). This can be represented by the ideal formula A 2 M 3 Si 2 O 7 SiO 4 O F OH O. In the more common varieties the A sites contain large, high-coordination number cations such as Ca, Sr, and the REE, and the M sites

Epidote Group Minerals Physical Optical Properties

Epidote Group Minerals Physical Optical Properties

Apr 18, 2018 Epidote is a silicate mineral that is typically observed in domestically metamorphosed rocks of low-to-slight grade. In those rocks, epidote is often associated with amphiboles, feldspars, quartz, and chlorite. It occurs as replacements of mineral grains

Recommended nomenclature of epidotegroup minerals

Recommended Nomenclature Of Epidotegroup Minerals

An epidote-group mineral is described with the generic formula A 2 M 3 T 2 O 7TO4(O,F)(OH,O). The monoclinic crystal structure is composed of T 2 O 7 (usually Si 2 O 7) and TO 4 (usually SiO 4) units linked to two kinds of chains (parallel to the b-axis) built by edge-sharing octahedra . One chain consists of M2 octahedra while the other chain is formed by M1 octahedra with M3 octahedra attached on

Epidotebearing Amphibolite Alex Strekeisen

Epidote-bearing amphibolite. The name amphibolite has been used in geological literature for nearly 200 years, since Brongniart (1813). Amphibolite is a gneissose or granofelsic metamorphic rock mainly consisting of green, brown or black amphibole and plagioclase (including albite), which combined form 75% of the rock and both of which are present as major constituents the amphibole constitutes

Example of Progressive Metamorphism. Progressive or prograde metamorphism occurs as the temperature and pressure are increased on the rock. As the pressure and temperature increase, a rock of a given chemical composition is expected to undergo a continuous series of chemical reactions between its constituent minerals and any fluid phase present to produce a series of new mineral assemblages ...
