Intersector element partitioning in tourmaline: a potentially powerful single crystal thermometer

Abstract:

Hourglass sector zoning, and related polar overgrowths, are common features of metamorphic tourmaline, developing as a result of variations in element preference on the different growth surfaces. For sector-zoned crystals, three domains are present for each growth zone (c+, c- and a), with compositional differences most distinct for Ca and Ti, and among c+ and c- sectors. Intersector differences vary, commonly showing decreasing fractionation from core to rim attributed to increasing metamorp...
