Detailed Raman spectroscopic and electron microprobe studies of 33 amphibole (AB 2 C 5 T 8 O 22 W 2 , C 5 = M1 2 M2 2 M3) crystals from 6 amphibole subgroups were performed to check whether the Raman scattering arising from OH bond stretching vibrations can be used for the identification and site-occupancy analysis of amphiboles. Several results can be gained from this study. (1) C-site Mg and Fe 2+ on the M1M1M3 triplet linked to the W-site OH − lead to two-mode behavior of the OH bond… CONTINUE READING
