By far the most abundant hydrous minerals in metapelites are the potassic micas phengite and biotite. The amount of H 2 O stored in micas (containing 9–10 wt.% K 2 O and 4–4.5 wt.% H 2 O) is easily calculated from the bulk K 2 O content.
The present results indicate that during the weathering of granitic rocks in Antarctica, secondary hydrous minerals (e.g., goethite) can form following fracturing of the rock and subsequent oxidation, even under hyper-arid and hypothermal conditions.
Granitic Pegmatites – Storehouses of Industrial Minerals Not all pegmatitic ores consist of rare elements or rare minerals. Pegmatites are the primary sources of feldspar for the glass and ceramics industries. The low iron and calcium contents of feldspars in pegmatite make these materials most desirable for these applications. Quartz is
Feldspar within a pegmatite may display exaggerated and perfect twinning, exsolution lamellae, and when affected by hydrous crystallization, macroscale graphic texture is known, with feldspar and quartz intergrown. Perthite feldspar within a pegmatite often
MINERALS IN GRANITIC ROCKS Granitic rocks (felsic to intermediate intrusive rocks) are composed mainly of the three minerals quartz, plagioclase, and potassium feldspar and their classification is based upon the relative proportions of these three minerals that you examined in previous labs.
Hydrous mica, also called hydromica, any of the illite group of clay minerals, including illite, bramallite (a sodium illite), and glauconite. They are structurally related to the micas; glauconite is also a member of the common-mica group.
forming silicate minerals, much of the silica remains at sites of weathering either as part of clay-mineral molecules or as poorly crystallized or amorphous residues. Iron and aluminum are virtually immobile in the environment, as they are retained in products of weathering, probably as hydrous oxides.
A granitic rock with a porphyritic texture is known as a granite porphyry. Granitoid is a general, descriptive field term for lighter-colored, coarse-grained igneous rocks. Petrographic examination is required for identification of specific types of granitoids. 
Summary. It was once thought that granitic magma was so viscous that it would take hundred of millions of years for granitic rocks to form. However, recent research shows that granitic magmas are orders of magnitude less viscous than previously believed.
Dealing with the petrogenesis of granitic rocks, this work provides a summary and interpretation of experimental results obtained in synthetic and natural rock systems. The significance of water for the formation, intrusion, and crystallization of granitic magmas is also included.
About 200 minerals are called the rock-forming minerals. These are the minerals that are listed and described below. More than 99.9% of the Earth’s crust is composed of these minerals. This list of minerals and specific articles about each mineral species are all focused on minerals as they naturally occur within rocks and sediments.

The ASI of granitic melts derived by partial melting of peraluminous rocks will depend on the saturation values of peraluminous minerals in melt, as well as the interplay between the kinetics of peraluminous mineral dissolution and the time interval between magma gen …
In discussing the crystallization of a granitic magma it is sometimes assumed that there is a simple pro rata increase of the water content of the residual liquid as crystallization proceeds; i.e., it is assumed that, when the proportion of crystals amounts to one-half, the amount of water in the liquid is doubled, and when the crystals are nine-tenths, the water is increased tenfold.
Granitic pegmatites are mined for feldspar, quartz, mica, lithium aluminosilicate minerals, and kaolin. These industrial minerals have a myriad of uses, some as mundane as glasses, porcelains, and ...
Occurrence - Nearly pure phlogopite is found in hydrous ultrabasic rocks like kimberlite, and is also found in metamorphosed dolomites. Biotite, with more Fe-rich compositions is common in dacitic, rhyolitic, and trachytic volcanic rocks, granitic plutonic rocks, and a wide variety of metamorphic rocks.
In the Tanco granitic pegmatite, eastern Manitoba, fluid inclusions in spodumene display broad variations from crystal-rich to crystal-absent, the absence being ascribed to necking of large fluid inclusions after the crystallization of daughter minerals (London 1986). However, localized populations of fluid inclusions in

for the hydrous composition, because it is difficult to syn-thesize two hydrous glasses with different Cu concentra-tion, but with exactly the same water content. We, therefore, shifted to a diffusion-in design. The diffusion couple was Table 1 Granitic/rhyolitic composition in wt% aH 2 …

2O contents of granitic liquids by extrapolation from low-pressure experiments to pressures (P )and temperatures T implies that the H 2O resident in hydrous minerals is insufﬁcient to account for large granite volumes, such as anorogenic granite batholiths in continental interiors. To test this, we conducted new experiments on the H
The significance of water for the formation, intrusion and crystallization of granitic magmas forms an important part of the book. Emphasizing experimental aspects, the reader is provided with a thorough understanding of the evolution of granites, which is the most …
This means that the ASI of a granitic rock is mostly a function of the sources of a magma, with peraluminous magmas formed from hydrous melting of mafic rocks (Ellis & Thompson, 1986) or by melting of pelitic or semi-pelitic rocks (Holtz & Johannes, 1991).

minerals in granitic melt, and the effects, if any, of BeO on solidus or liquidus relations are unknown. Because beryl is such a widespread phase in granitic pegmatites, it is necessary to consider its significance in terms of the overall characteriza-tion of pegmatitic melts and their properties (London 1996; Dingwell et al. 1996).
They occur in many metamorphic rocks, especially those derived from mafic igneous rocks (those containing dark-coloured ferromagnesian minerals) and siliceous dolomites. Amphiboles also are important constituents in a variety of plutonic and volcanic igneous rocks that range in composition from granitic to gabbroic.
