Numerous sam.Fles of iron oxide/silica material from sites on the East Pacific Rise, Juan de Fuca,/Explorer Ridges, and other areas are porous and consist of branching filaments of iron oxide and amorphous silica (opal A). A simiIar flamentous microtexture characterizes cherts associated with terrestrial sulfides of oceanic origin. Observation of zonation within these deposits and consideration of conditions necessary for the precipitation of iron oxide and opal A lead us to propose that… CONTINUE READING
