Large olivine crystals with pyroxene and plagioclase filling interstices indicate the cumulate texture. Dacite Dacite is a felsic extrusive rock, intermediate in composition between andesite and rhyolite. Plagioclase (red in Fig. Factors controlling apatite vs. merrillite are in all likelihood connected to the relative abundances of volatile elements, which are concentrated in apatite, and of rare earth elements, which are concentrated in merrillite. Dacite. Karymsky caldera was explosively formed 7900 yr BP as the result of eruption of 5–7 km 3 of dacite with collapse of Pra-Karymsky volcano (Braitseva and Melekestsev, 1991).

Figure 1 shows false-color elemental mapping of Al (red), Mg (green), and Fe (blue) Kα x-rays, and distinguishes the main minerals of NWA 2727, as shown in the following colors: light green and blue colors indicate olivine; dark green and blue colors indicate pyroxene; red color indicates plagioclase. The highly ferroan and silica-rich composition of dacite clast formed at least in part by crystallization from residual liquid after Mg-depletion by fractional crystallization of a parental melt. 9b). HN and TF carried out the SEM and EPMA analyses. The presence of the dacite clast is, thus, consistent with a PKT origin for meteorites of the NWA 773 clan, as are the mafic composition, geochemical KREEP signature, and young crystallization age. (1993) reported apatite but no merrillite in Apollo felsite 14161,7269, and likewise, Warren et al. 2019). Fine pyroxene crystals that are interwoven with apatite in the mafic cluster and the coarse pyroxene have essentially identical Wo-En-Fs compositions; the fine pyroxene near the upper right margin (Px fine2 in Fig. Large and small varieties of OG clasts are included in the PTS. Springer Nature. Silica minerals are not found in the OG clast. This clast is characterized as a dacite on the basis of mineral modes and whole-rock chemical composition.

The basement rocks are granite, schist, and gneiss. Though the absolute age (or ages) of anorthosites in the highlands has been a topic of recent research (e.g., Borg et al. QAPF diagram. In: Abstracts of the 50th lunar and planetary science conference, 2019, the Woodlands, Texas, p 2270, Nagaoka H, Karouji Y, Takeda H, Fagan TJ, Ebihara M, Hasebe N (2015) Mineralogy and petrology of lunar meteorite Northwest Africa 2977 consisting of olivine cumulate gabbro including inverted pigeonite. Cristobalite and tridymite observed in the clast are thought to have been quenched from conditions of low pressures (< 1 GPa) and high temperatures (~ 870 to ~ 1500 °C) (e.g., Presnall 1995; Koike et al. The acronym, QAPF, stands for "Quartz, Alkali feldspar, Plagioclase, Feldspathoid (Foid)". The silicic clast is 2.2 × 1.3 mm in size in this PTS. 2019). The clast was identified in Northwest Africa 2727 (NWA 2727), which is included in the NWA 773 clan. (2015), the high-temperature polymorphs of silica have more open structures than quartz and thus, may accommodate elevated concentrations of minor elements. The partitioning of Ba between Fe-rich and Si-alkali-rich immiscible liquids depends on the molar (Na2O + K2O + CaO + BaO)/Al2O3 ratio in the granitic immiscible melt. Lithos 170-171:239–251, Shaulis BJ, Righter M, Lapen TJ, Jolliff BJ, Irving AJ (2017) 3.1 Ga crystallization age for magnesian and ferroan gabbro lithologies in the Northwest Africa 773 clan of lunar meteorites. While we cannot rule out the possibility that the dacite clast is an unusual variety of the FG/ARFe lithology, the high SiO2-content, high ratio of plagioclase/K-feldspar and occurrence of apatite without merrillite all point toward a distinct origin for the dacite clast (see “Petrogenesis of the dacite clast” section for further discussion). In lunar basaltic rocks, low Ti/Al (~ 0.25) is associated with pyroxene that crystallized prior to feldspar, whereas higher Ti/Al (~ 0.5) indicates pyroxene that crystallized after feldspar crystallization had started (Bence et al. In addition to the large pyroxene gabbro clast, other FG lithologies are present as smaller clasts in the PTS and in other specimens of NWA 2727 (Bunch et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci 111:12689–12692, Bonin B (2012) Extra-terrestrial igneous granites and related rocks: a review of their occurrence and petrogenesis. Warm colors (red) indicate high peak intensities and dark (blue) colors denote low intensities. 2011).

In the case of Earth, granite formation is often associated with wet conditions during various stages of melting and crystallization (Campbell and Taylor 1983; Brown 2013). Representative Raman spectra of a tridymite and cristobalite and b quartz in the silicic clast. 1983; Salpas et al. The presence of olivine phenocrysts and fine-grained groundmass consisting of pyroxene and plagioclase of this basaltic clast are similar to the olivine-phyric basalt (OPB) described by Valencia et al. Some of FG clasts (symplectite and ARFe) in other portions of NWA 773 clan include silica minerals (Fagan et al. S.K. Topics related to both. All of the pyroxene analyses indicate hedenbergitic compositions with Fe# and Ti# both ≥ 99 (Ti# = molar Ti/[Ti + Cr] × 100) (Table 2; Figs. 2011; Snape et al. It is possible that immiscibility followed fractional crystallization. The incorporating officers were: J. Trincano; Carney’s brother, T.G. 2a).

However, the immiscible inclusions are dominated by alkali feldspar rather than plagioclase, and the main Ca-phosphate of the ARFe lithology is merrillite rather than apatite. 2015) were detected. Some time during the 1930’s Lava Cliffs became known as Dacite Cliffs. 2019). It has a fine-grained (aphanitic) to porphyritic texture and is intermediate in composition between andesite and rhyolite. Immediately north of Don’s Camp are towering cliffs formed from volcanic lava some seventeen million years ago. 1988); QMD (Taylor et al. On the other hand, the concentrations of SiO2 and alkali elements in the dacite are not as high as those in the Apollo granite and felsite. 8). Topics related to both Dacite and Igneous textures. This landmark played an important role in the Don’s Club’s Annual Superstition Trek. 2003; Morota et al. As the oceanic plate descends into the mantle, it undergoes partial melting with liberated water facilitating the melting of surrounding rocks. NWA 2727 includes clasts of all of the four lithologies described above (OG, AG, FG, OPB), as reported by Valencia et al. 2019). Earth Planet Sci Lett 302:255–266, Morris RV, Vaniman DT, Blake DF, Gellert R, Chipera SJ, Rampe EB, Ming DW, Morrison SM, Downs RT, Treiman AH, Yen AS, Grotzinger JP, Achilles CN, Bristow TF, Crisp JA, Des Marais DJ, Farmer JD, Frendrich KV, Frydenvang J, Graff TG, Morookian J-M, Stolper EM, Schwenzer SP (2016) Silicic volcanism on Mars evidenced by tridymite in high-SiO2 sedimentary rock at Gale crater. Slow cooling facilitates the growth of large mineral crystals in the rock. 3c, d. In this part of the clast, fine pyroxene crystals (< 100 μm; Px fine1 in Fig. Latite, extrusive igneous rock very abundant in western North America. Therefore, silicic igneous rocks formed by conditions and processes distinct from the settings typical of Earth. It is a rock type usually found on continental crust above subduction zones, where a relatively young oceanic plate has melted below.

Photoshop was also used to estimate the area fraction (mode) of minerals from elemental maps covering approximately 3 mm2 in the silicic clast by counting pixels of each phase, which is taken to be proportional to the volume fraction. However, the coarse grain sizes and intergrown feldspar texture of the dacite clast are distinct from the shock-related occurrences of silica identified by Kayama et al. The poor crystallinity of much of the silica in the clast is likely due to rapid cooling during crystallization. Hiroshi Nagaoka. 2019). 1980; Ryder and Martinez 1991; Jolliff et al. 2011). (2019), the origin of the dacite clast is broadly similar to the origin of the FG/ARFe lithology. 1992; Jolliff et al. Bull Volcanol 72:249–253, Hubbard NJ, Rhodes JM, Gast PW, Bansal BM, Shih C-Y, Wiseman H, Nyquist LE (1973) Lunar rock types: the role of plagioclase in non-mare and highland rock types. The difference in alkalis reflects the lower mode of K-feldspar and the low albite content (Ab11) of plagioclase in comparison with the Apollo granitic samples and in the terrestrial andesite/dacite. Dacitic magma is formed by the subduction of young oceanic crust under a thick felsic continental plate. Plagioclase has chemical compositions near An87 with limited Ab-An zoning (An82–91; Table 3). However, terrestrial A-type or ferroan granitoids are characterized by more anhydrous conditions (Frost and Frost 2011), and share some similarities in mineralogy, chemistry, and possibly origin with granitic rocks on differentiated bodies other than the Earth (Bonin 2012). The silicic clast occurs isolated in breccia, and has no spatial or zoning relationships with those gabbros. 1995; Togashi et al. Several candidates for silicic volcanism/plutonism have been identified in the PKT (e.g., Gruithuisen Domes, Hansteen alpha, Lassell Massif). (2015) investigated the launch site of the NWA 773 using bulk composition, lunar global element maps (FeO, TiO2, and Th), and age constraints. 2d) are surrounded by a fine-grained groundmass of pyroxene (dark blue in Fig. Am Mineral 36:282–286, Roedder E, Weiblen PW (1970) Lunar petrology of silicate melt inclusions, Apollo 11 rocks. The presence of multiple types of basalts indicates that some clasts of the NWA 773 clan formed initially from variable types of volcanism. Dacite is found in lava flows, lava domes, dikes, sills, and pyroclastic debris. Thin-section scale back-scattered electron (BSE) images and X-ray elemental maps were collected by an electron probe micro-analyzer (EPMA) (JEOL JXA-8900) at Kobe University.

Immiscibility has been discussed as a possible explanation for the formation of lunar granites and the absence of intermediate lithologies (e.g., Jolliff 1991; Seddio et al. Some portions of cristobalite and tridymite also occur in silica micrograins in the shock veins, which apparently transformed from moganite during post-shock decompression. This is lava from Mt. The largest OG clast in this PTS is 8.0 × 6.2 mm in size (Fig. Geochim Cosmochim Acta 67:4857–4879, Kayama M, Tomioka N, Ohtani E, Seto Y, Nagaoka H, Götze J, Miyake A, Ozawa S, Sekine T, Miyahara M, Tomeoka K, Matumoto M, Shoda N, Hirao N, Kobayashi T (2018) Discovery of moganite in a lunar meteorite as a trace of H2O ice in the Moon’s regolith. The clast consists mostly of plagioclase and pyroxene, which are in subequal proportions. Several grains of olivine are over 1 mm across. A notorious example of this is Mount St. Helens in which dacite domes formed from previous eruptions. Plagioclase (red in Fig. Well-characterized oxides, silicates, and phosphates were used as standards. 1993; Fagan et al.

In context|geology|lang=en terms the difference between andesite and dacite is that andesite is (geology) a class of fine-grained intermediate igneous rock, of volcanic origin, containing mostly plagioclase feldspar while dacite is (geology) an igneous, volcanic rock with a high iron content. Anorthositic gabbro clasts have cumulate texture consisting of coarse crystals of anhedral plagioclase intergrown with pyroxene (Valencia et al. 2018), and trachyandesite ALM-A from the Almahata Sitta ureilite strewn field (Bischoff et al. Dacite. Share. Mafic mineral crystals in the silicic clast are much finer-grained (0.3 mm in maximum dimension) than those of three gabbros (OG, AG, FG), and similar in size to olivine phenocrysts in the OPB. Progress in Earth and Planetary Science Here, we have found a silicic clast in the lunar meteorite breccia Northwest Africa 2727 (NWA 2727), which is included in the NWA 773 clan of lunar meteorites (Jolliff et al. Anhedral crystals of plagioclase (red in Fig. 2006; Valencia et al. Obsidian is extremely rich in silica (about 65 to 80 percent), is low in water, and has a chemical composition similar to rhyolite. 2d). Therefore, the plagioclase-rich clast is categorized as AG, although the presence of olivine was not reported in the AG clasts described by Valencia et al. Icarus 211:101–113, Marvin UB, Lindstrom MM, Holmberg BB, Martinez RR (1991) New observations on the quartz monzodiorite-granite suite. The silicic clast consists mostly of plagioclase, alkali feldspar, and silica, which comprise > 80 vol% of the mode as exposed in our PTS (Table 1; Fig. Lava domes evolve unpredictably, due to non-linear dynamics caused by crystallization and outgassing of the highly viscous lava in the dome's conduit. The Raman data were collected in five accumulations of 60 s for the spectra and three accumulations of 30 s exposure time for mapping. Meteorit Planet Sci 41:1383–1418, Day JMD, Ash RD, Liu Y, Bellucci JJ, Rumble D III, McDonough WF, Walker RJ, Taylor LA (2009) Early formation of evolved asteroidal crust. This clast is characterized as a dacite on the basis of the low-pressure origin indicated by cristobalite and tridymite combined with the bulk composition. 2b). 2014). IUGS Classification of volcanic rocks (Streckeisen 1979). Dacite is found in lava flows, lava domes, dikes, sills, and pyroclastic debris. Finally, although K-feldspar and silica are characteristic of the FG/ARFe clasts, they typically occur in minor modal abundances compared to mafic silicates. On Earth, igneous processes in diverse geochemical settings have resulted in wide compositional ranges of mafic to silicic rocks which form the crust. I. α and β quartz. Geology.com Detailed explanations of each figure are as follows: a olivine gabbro (OG); b anorthositic gabbro (AG); c pyroxene gabbro; d olivine-phyric basalt (OPB). (2014) are grouped together as variations within ferroan gabbro (FG) by Valencia et al. Meteorit Planet Sci 45:1929–1947. White circle represents the silicic clast (this work). All the spectral data were calibrated by monitoring the position of the O-Si-O bending vibration (464 cm−1) in reference standard quartz of high optical grade before and after each measurement. 2019). 1990; Snyder et al. The 3-kilometre (2 mi)-wide caldera was formed by the collapse of this dacite volcano following a catastrophic VEI-6 eruption about 800 years ago, which produced pyroclastic flows and lahars that reached the Pacific Ocean, and spread an airborne deposit of … The grain sizes of olivine phenocrysts are from 0.3 × 0.1 mm to 0.6 × 0.3 mm across. This clast has coarse laths of anhedral plagioclase intergrown with pyroxene similar to the cumulate texture of AG as described by Valencia et al. The Cascade Range formed … In: Abstracts of the 8th lunar science conference, 1977, Houston, Texas, pp 700–702, Nagaoka H, Fagan TJ, Kayama M, Karouji Y, Hasebe N, Ebihara M (2019) Mineralogic and petrologic characterization of a new silicic clast in lunar brecciated meteorite, Northwest Africa 2727. (2015). Its highly ferroan (Mg# < 1) and intermediate SiO2 composition (63 wt%) distinguish the dacite clast from other evolved lunar rocks. 1985; Gust and Arculus 1986; Imai et al. It has a fine-grained (aphanitic) to porphyritic texture and is intermediate in composition between andesite and rhyolite.It is composed predominantly of plagioclase feldspar and quartz.. Dacite is relatively common, occurring in many tectonic settings. 2018). Isotopic Sm-Nd isochron ages of the OG lithology have been analyzed by Borg et al. We infer that this clast crystallized from silicic melt that formed by endogenic igneous processes on the Moon. 9. In the Raman maps, the integral intensities of the main bands for each mineral were extracted from the spectral data of each measuring point to observe distributions of minerals. Oceanic crust is hydrothermally altered causing addition of quartz and sodium. Some Examples of Extrusive Igneous rocks are andesite, basalt, dacite… 2019). 2015). In contrast, the surface of the Moon is dominated by anorthositic rocks in the highlands and basaltic rocks in the lowlands. In addition to the OPB, other types of basaltic clasts with pyroxene phenocrysts have been found in the NWA 773 clan. This model is consistent with the observation that quartz is the only SiO2 polymorph found in lunar granitic samples (Warren et al. Nevertheless, because of the moderate silica content, dacitic magma is quite viscous and therefore prone to explosive eruption.
