Exsolution in ferromagnesian olivine of the divnoe meteorite.


Ferromagnesian olivine, one of the most common minerals in the solar system, has been widely regarded as a continuous solid solution, although several thermodynamic analyses have suggested the possibility of a miscibility gap at low temperatures. Natural ferromagnesian olivine from the Divnoe meteorite contains compositionally different exsolution lamellae, providing direct evidence for the existence of a miscibility gap in iron-magnesium olivine solid solutions.
