Thermo-elastic behavior of grossular garnet at high ...

AbstractThe thermo-elastic behavior of synthetic single crystals of grossular garnet (Ca3Al2Si3O12) has been studied in situ as a function of pressure and temperature separately. The same data collection protocol has been adopted to collect both the pressure-volume (P-V) and temperature-volume (T-V) data sets to make the measurements consistent with one another.

The hydrous components in garnets: Grossular ...

Grossular garnets from 33 localities were examined for indications of OH- or H_2O in their infrared spectrum. All contained OH-. Classical hydrogrossular with more than 5 wt% H_2O displays systematics pectroscopic behavior consistent with the hydrogarnet substitution consisting of two absorption bands at 3598 and 3662 cm^(-1). These spectroscopic characteristics were generally not observed in ...

Fe 3+-Al 3+ substitution in the octahedral site of 14 natural garnet samples was investi­gated through measurement of complete single-crystal infrared (IR) reflectance spectra across the grossular-andradite [Ca 3 (Al x Fe 1-x) 2 Si 3 O 12] binary. Frequencies of all 17 IR- active fundamental modes depend nearly linearly on composition.
