The AFM projection (A=AI2O3-K2O-Na2O-CaO, F = FeO, M = MgO) provides a conienient-way tdilustrate the liquidus reactions involving muscovite (Mus), an alu- minum silicate mineral (Als:AI2SiO5, andalusite, sil_ limanite or kyanite), biotite @io), cordi;rite (Cdt) and sili_ cate liquids (LiO saturated with quartz (etz), alkali feldspar (Ksp) and plagioclase @la). Building on the work of Thompson (1982), it is shown that the AFM liquidus field for Mus (Mus + Liq + Qtz + Ksp + pla) suppresses the… CONTINUE READING
