Compositional zoning of trace elements is observed in time-equivalent regions within 10 \(\overline{1}\) 4 growth sectors of natural and synthetic calcite single crystals, and has been called "intrasectoral zoning" to distinguish it from conventional sectoral zoning. Differential interference contrast microscopy shows that {101 \(\overline{1}\) 4} faces grow by the spiral mechanism. Cathodoluminescence microscopy and electron probe microanalyses reveal that trace element partitioning… CONTINUE READING
