THERMODYNAMICS OF WATER IN CORDIERITE AND SOME PETROLOGIC CONSEQUENCES OF CORDIERITE AS A HYDROUS PHASE

Abstract:

The H2O content of cordierite is often regarded as incidental to its stability, probably because cordierite has substantial fields of stability at low pressures both in wet and dry experimental systems. In this paper we show that, in contrast, the molecular water content of cordierite has profound effects on many equilibria involving this phase. Mg-cordierite has been modelled as an ideal solid solution of the hydrous and anhydrous end-members Mg2Al4Si5O18·1.2H2O and Mg2Al4Si5O18 respectively...
