2020-11-1  The higher and variable Ti and Ge concentrations in quartz at Woxi are indicative of a higher and dramatic change of fluid temperature during quartz precipitation; whereas the quartz at Xikuangshan has lower and homogeneous Ti and Ge concentrations, reflecting lower fluid temperature and smaller temperature fluctuations during quartz formation. Still, quartz at Xikuangshan contains higher Li, Na,

2011-9-22  This is where the well-known Suttrop-type quartz comes from. The hydrothermal vein formation is thought to be linked to Carboniferous basalt intrusions that occured about 10-20 km south of the locations in Devonian shales. The quartz mineralizations and their relation the geological history of the limestones has been investigated by Behr et al., 1979.

2011-9-22  One quartz variety is exclusively found in pegmatites, albeit very rarely: pink quartz. Another typical and more common product of pegmatites is rose quartz, but it has also been reported to occur in hydrothermal quartz veins. Of the other varieties rock crystal, milky quartz and smoky quartz are fairly common, while amethyst is quite rare.

Structural and hydrothermal alteration mapping

2020-8-30  The high flux of hydrothermal-auriferous fluids that migrated through permeable brittle (faulted) rocks caused the mineralizing fluids composing of quartz, gold and magnetite to interact with the protoliths (parent rocks), i.e. meta-volcano-sedimentary rocks and granites, thereby resulting to hydrothermal alteration haloes and precipitation of ...

Hydrothermal Activity at the Ultraslow‐Spreading

2019-11-19  Thus, geophysical remote sensing becomes critical for locating extinct hydrothermal areas, especially when buried by sediments or lava flows. Several studies (Zierenberg et al., 1998 , and references therein) have stated the higher economic potential of such sites that are usually mature and well‐developed deposits (Houghton et al., 2004 ).
