Abstract The Eonyang amethyst deposit is thought to be spatially and temporally associated with the biotite granite of the Cretaceous Kyongsang Basin, South Korea. The euhedral quartz crystals in cavities in the aplite which intrudes biotite granite are colour-zoned from white at the base to amethystine at the top. Fluid inclusions from rock-forming quartz in granitic rocks and euhedral quartz crystals in cavities were examined. Three types of primary inclusions were observed and three… Expand
Fluid inclusions in amethyst quartz of different geological environments from Brazil
Abstract Fluid-inclusion studies were conducted on amethyst quartz from three different geological environments: basalt cavities; hydrothermal veins; and granitic pegmatites of Eastern Brazil, toExpand
Quartz-Amethyst Hosted Hydrocarbon-Bearing Fluid Inclusions from the Green Ridge Breccia in the Snoqualmie Granite, North Cascades, WA, USA
The Green Ridge Breccia cuts the composite Miocene Snoqualmie Batholith in King County, WA, USA. The granite was emplaced at ~5 km depth between ~17 and 20 Ma and the crosscutting NW trending brecciaExpand
Genesis of amethyst geodes in basaltic rocks of the Serra Geral Formation (Ametista do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil): a fluid inclusion, REE, oxygen, carbon, and Sr isotope study on basalt, quartz, and calcite
Abstract. In the Ametista do Sul area, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, amethyst-bearing geodes are hosted by a ~40- to 50-m-thick subhorizontal high-Ti basaltic lava flow of the Lower Cretaceous ParanáExpand
Periodically Released Magmatic Fluids Create a Texture of Unidirectional Solidification (UST) in Ore-Forming Granite: A Fluid and Melt Inclusion Study of W-Mo Forming Sannae-Eonyang Granite, Korea
The Upper Cretaceous Sannae-Eonyang granite crystallized approximately 73 Ma and hosted the Sannae W-Mo deposit in the west and the Eonyang amethyst deposit in the east. The granite containedExpand
Inclusion study of hourglass amethyst from Boudi (Morocco) by Raman microspectroscopy and microthermometric measurements.
Amethyst from Boudi with characteristic hourglass colour zoning hosts numerous pseudo-secondary fluid and mineral inclusions, mainly composed of H 2 O and subordinately CO 2 both gaseous and liquid, which are characteristic for violet zones than colourless regions of the crystal. Expand


Fluid circulation in the Apuane Alps core complex : evidence from extension veins in the Carrara marble
In the Apuane Alps (AA) metamorphic core complex, syn-metamorphic mineral deposits are mainly restricted to extensional shear zones in the Lower Plate Palaeozoic basement. By contrast, the extensionExpand
Late-orogenic alpine-type (apatite)-quartz fissure vein mineralization in the Rheinisches Schiefergebirge, NW Germany: mineralogy, formation conditions and lateral-secretionary origin
Abstract Mineralogical, geochemical and fluid inclusion investigations of a representative suite of fissure vein mineralizations in the Rheinisches Schiefergebirge, NW Germany indicate a link to theExpand
A high-temperature hydrothermal origin for black dolomite matrix breccias in the Irish Zn-Pb orefield
Abstract We make the first report of fluid inclusion data from a black dolomite matrix breccia from the Irish orefield which confirm a relatively high-temperature hydrothermal origin. Breccia matrixExpand
Synthetic fluid inclusions in natural quartz. III. Determination of phase equilibrium properties in the system H2O-NaCl to 1000°C and 1500 bars
Phase equilibria in the system H2O-NaCl have been determined to 1000°C and 1500 bars using synthetic fluid inclusions formed by healing fractures in inclusion-free Brazilian quartz in the presence ofExpand
The tops and bottoms of porphyry copper deposits
Although it is now widely accepted that porphyry copper deposits consist of zonally arranged shells of alteration and mineralization centered on high-level, calc-alkaline stocks, the nature of theirExpand
40Ar/39Ar chronology of the Leucite Hills, Wyoming: eruption rates, erosion rates, and an evolving temperature structure of the underlying mantle
Abstract The lamproite lavas of the Leucite Hills, Wyoming comprise an isolated volcanic field of mesas and buttes, which erupted onto a thick sequence of K/T shales and sandstones. Volcanic activityExpand
An extended equation to calculate NaCl contents from final clathrate melting temperatures in H2O-CO2-NaCl fluid inclusions: Implications for P-T isochore location
This report informs fluid inclusion researchers of an extended equation to calculate wt% NaCl from final CO{sub 2}-clathrate melting temperatures in H{sub 2}O-CO{sub 2}-NaCl fluid inclusions. ThisExpand
SALTY: a FORTRAN program to calculate compositions of fluid inclusions in the system NaC1-KC1-H 2
An algorithm for estimating compositions of fluid inclusions approximated by the NaClKClH2O system has been developed using recently published data for phase equilibrium properties ofExpand
Calculation of the thermodynamic and geochemical consequences of nonideal mixing in the system H2O-CO2-NaCl on phase relations in geologic systems: Equation of state for H2O-CO2-NaCl fluids at high pressures and temperatures
Fluid inclusion analyses leave little doubt that solutions containing large concentrations of H2O, CO2, and electrolytes are involved in a wide range of geologic processes. Although the miscibilityExpand
