Polymineral-Metasomatic Crystallogenesis by Arkady Eduardovich Glikin

By Arkady Eduardovich Glikin

"Polymineral-Metasomatic Crystallogenesis" is devoted to the rules of polymineral crystallogenesis in recommendations commonly taking place in nature. results, legislation, and mechanisms of a metasomatic crystal substitute, joint crystal progress of alternative levels, combined crystal formation, and combination re-crystallization in addition to orientated overgrowth (epitaxy and quasi-epitaxy) and crystal behavior starting place are thought of experimentally. The behaviour of those methods in nature are mentioned as well as pseudomorphs, poikilitic crystals (and different alternative forms), good points of rapakivi constitution, fluorite morphology, and lots of extra. the idea that is a generalization of the vintage idea on crystallogenesis that's complex via section interplay in polymineral systems.

"Polymineral-Metasomatic Crystallogenesis" is designed for chemists, geologists, physicists, and postgraduates and complicated undergraduate scholars of those fields.
