In the metamorphosed manganese oxide ores of India, braunite is ubiquitous in all assemblages from chlorite to sillimanite grades. Chemical analyses of braunite from different prograde assemblages confirm the presence of a fixed R2+ (=Mn2++Mg+Ca) SiO3 molecule in the mineral. Element partitioning between coexisting braunite and bixbyite indicates a near-ideal mixing of Fe+3/ -Mn+3 in the phases. This also indicates that braunite became relatively ferrian while equilibrating with associated… Expand
