This paper examines the spatial statistics of matrix minerals and complex patterned cordierite porphyroblasts in the low-pressure, high-temperature (low P/T) Tsukuba metamorphic rocks from central Japan, using a density correlation function. The cordierite-producing reaction is sillimanite + biotite + quartz = K-feldspar + cordierite + water. The density correlation function shows that quartz is distributed randomly. However, the density correlation functions of biotite, plagioclase and K… CONTINUE READING
