The fractionation factor of oxygen isotopes between quartz and water has been extensively studied from experimental1,2, theoretical3,4,5 and empirical viewpoints6 and has been widely used to estimate the isotopic composition or the temperatures of water relating to various geological processes. At lower temperatures, where hydrothermal processes, diagenesis and other processes take place, however, the fractionation factor for quartz as well as other silica minerals has not been studied… CONTINUE READING
