Serpentine “polymorph” minerals (chrysotile, lizardite, and antigorite) are hydrous Mg–Fe silicates that commonly form serpentine rock (serpentinite) by hydration of olivine-pyroxene peridotites from the mantle of the Earth. During the complex geologic history of orogenic belts, the redox and hydration state of the mantle changes, and olivine and pyroxenes are replaced by serpentine group minerals during tectonic deformation and uplift. Unfortunately, modern microanalysis of minerals by… 

Redox status of Fe in serpentinites of the Coast Range and Zambales Ophiolite

Although, the reduced status of the Earth’s upper mantle is a possible controller of the deep, rock-hosted biosphere, knowledge of the redox state of the mantle is incomplete. Peridotites (mantle

Spectroscopic characterization of Fe-doped synthetic chrysotile by EPR, DRS and magnetic susceptibility measurements.

The results allow to define the opportunity of using or not metallic Fe during the synthesis to obtain doped chrysotile nanocrystals with tailored morphological and structural properties suitable as a reference to study asbestos toxicity and apt to prepare new inorganic nanotubes and quantum wires for innovative technological applications.



Late Ordovician–Early Silurian continental collisional orogeny in southern Mexico and its bearing on Gondwana-Laurentia connections

New zircon and monazite U-Pb data, tectonic mapping, and petrologic studies in key units of the Acatlan Complex show a previously undocumented phase of continental collision orogeny of Late

Four‐Window Cell and Cryostat for High Pressure Studies at Liquid Helium Temperature

A compact gas high pressure cell for measuring the optical properties of solids at low temperatures under pressures up to 10 kilobars is described. Using helium gas as the pressure‐transmitting
