Apatite is a minor but ubiquitous mineral in most igneous rocks. Although the modal proportion of apatite in common rocks is generally low, it can reach high concentrations in enclaves, cumulates, and other rocks of low abundance (i.e., rocks that constitute a small volume of the crust and mantle; e.g., nelsonites). The presence of apatite in most rocks is due not only to its low solubility in naturally occurring melts and aqueous solutions, but also to the limited ability of common rock… CONTINUE READING
