The crystallization sequence and metasomatic alteration of spodumene (LiAlSizOe), montebrasite (LiAIPO4(OH,F)), and lithiophilite (Li(Mn,Fe)PO+) are described for nine zoned lithium pegmatites in the White Picacho district, Arizona. The observed crystallization trends suggest a progressive increase in the activities of lithium species (spodumene follows microcline as the principal alkali aluminosilicate), as well as an increase in the activities of the acidic volatiles phosphorus and fluorine… CONTINUE READING
