Page 18 - and biotite, which is apparently new. A study of the relations of the minerals indicates that the rock originally consisted of augite and chrysolite and was nearly completely consolidated as such. These minerals were then attacked, with lowering temperature, probably by their own interstitial liquid as it changed in composition, and were replaced by monticellite,
Page 19 - melilites so formed are analogous to natural melilites in composition and optical properties. It is thus proved experimentally that nephelite reacts with diopside to form melilite, a reaction analogous to that which is considered to have taken place between augite and alkalic liquid in the natural rocks. This reaction is of the nature of a
Page 18 - and biotite with marialite, perovskite and titaniferous magnetite as minor products of the reaction. The monticellite is itself replaced by melilite and biotite and the melilite-biotite rock is the end product of the replacement. The replacement was accomplished by an alkalic liquid (magma) which formed monticellite from augite by desilicating it and later gave rise to melilite and the more definitely
