    Plagioclase is the most common feldspar, and occurs in igneous, metamorphic, and as (uncommon) detrital grains in sedimentary rocks. Plagioclase feldspar may be mistaken for orthoclase feldspars, but orthoclase typically varies in color from white to pink and lacks the fine striations that plagioclase feldspars have. Staining of thin sections for plagioclase and alkali feldspar has not become a universally applied petrographic tool, probably due to difficulties encountered in effectively staining plagioclase. Modifications of standard techniques are described for rapidly producing stained thin sections of Cited by:

    plagioclase is white and quartz vermicules are gray. Discussion The colors in the photomicrographs (Figs. , 5) are not the fluorescent colors of K, Ca, or Na because these elements do not fluoresce with these colors. The colors represent fluorescence of trace elements associated with the K, Ca, and Na in the by: 2. Alternate name for the plagioclase series of feldspars. In petrology, the plagioclase series are defined based on their percentage of albite (Ab) to anorthite (An). Compositions of individual samples are usually written as An24Ab76 meaning in this case that it is 24% anorthite and 76% albite. List of plagioclase group members as used in petrology.

Any of a series of triclinic feldspars that are a common constituent of rocks, plagioclase; plagioclase feldspar; plagioclastic; plagioclimax; Plagionite. The lower photographs shows two distinctive features of some plagioclase feldspars. 1. Irridescence is the beautiful peacock coloured reflections from cleavage surfaces. 2.

Stereograms for the determination of Plagioclase Feldspars in Random Sections by Nieuwenkamp, W and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Plagioclase is a series of tectosilicate (framework silicate) minerals within the feldspar group.

Rather than referring to a particular mineral with a specific chemical composition, plagioclase is a continuous solid solution series, more properly known as the plagioclase feldspar series (from the Ancient Greek for "oblique fracture", in reference to its two cleavage angles).Category: Feldspar mineral group, tectosilicate.

One Al leaves one bond for Na or K to fill. Two Al's leaves two bonds for Ca to fill. So there are two different mixtures that are possible in the feldspars, a sodium-potassium series and a sodium-calcium series. The first is alkali feldspar and the second is plagioclase : Andrew Alden.

Feldspars (K Al Si 3 O 8 – Na Al Si 3 O 8 – Ca Al 2 Si 2 O 8) are a group of rock-forming tectosilicate minerals that make up about 41% of the Earth's continental crust by weight.

Feldspars crystallize from magma as veins in both intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks and are also present in many types of metamorphic rock.

Rock formed almost entirely of calcic Category: Tectosilicate. Feldspar - Feldspar - Identification of specific feldspars: Alkali feldspars can often be distinguished from plagioclase feldspars because most grains of the latter exhibit albite twinning (see above Crystal structure), which is manifested by parallel lines on certain cleavage surfaces, whereas grains of alkali feldspars do not.

This criterion is not, however, absolute; some plagioclase. Plagioclase occurs as an important constituent of igneous and metamorphic rocks throughout the Upper Midwest.

Concentrated plagioclase deposits are found in north-central Minnesota, as well as the northeast corner of Minnesota bordering Canada and North Dakota.

Together with potassium feldspars, the plagioclase minerals form the bulk of the. Ferrous and ferric iron concentrations in feldspars with low total iron content (Cited by: According to the reference table, what is the approximate percentage of plagioclase feldspar in igneous diorite.

Plagioclase - NaAlSi 3 O CaAl 2 Si 2 O 8 The plagioclase feldspars are a complete solid solution series between Ab and An, and can contain small amounts of the or component.

Plagioclase feldspars are even more abundant than the alkali species and are found in many igneous and metamorphic rocks. Crystallization of plagioclase from a melt or molten rock magma has been studied in detail.

As the melt cools, the feldspar that forms is richer in calcium than the melt itself. On further cooling, feldspar that is richer in. The Plagioclase Feldspars.

The most notable additions in this edition include the sections dealing with imperfections, the phase rule, phase equilibrium diagrams, Pauling's rules, optical.

Feldspar - Feldspar - Crystal structure: Sanidine and orthoclase are monoclinic or nearly so; the plagioclase feldspars are triclinic. All, however, have the same fundamental structure: it consists of a continuous, negatively charged, three-dimensional framework that is made up of corner-sharing SiO4 and AlO4 tetrahedrons (each tetrahedron consists of a central silicon or.

Plagioclase feldspars give a main diffraction peak, which is also composite, at about 28~ For low albite the main peak at ~ is accompanied by a peak at ~ which is only a third of the intensity of the former.

Differentiation from K-feldspars is thus possible. Plagioclase feldspars other than pure sodium feldspar are thus stained a brick red by barium rhodizonate.

This procedure is combined with the cobaltinitrite staining of K-feldspar to stain K-feldspar yellow and plagioclase red on polished rock surfaces and uncovered thin sections. Feldspars lie along one of two solid-solution series, the plagioclase feldspars and the alkali or potassium feldspars.

All of them are based on the silica group, consisting of silicon atoms surrounded by four oxygens. In the feldspars, the silica groups form rigid three-dimensional interlocking : Andrew Alden.Plagioclase Feldspar Mineral Presentation University of Minnesota, Department of Geology and Geophysics, Dr.

Kent Kirkby. Funded in part by FIPSE. NASA Over half the Earth’s crust is composed of a single group of minerals known as the feldspars.

Introduction to Feldspar - * Feldspars are the most abundant minerals in the earth's crust. They constitute about 2/3rd of the igneous rocks.

* They are a group of rock-forming tectosillicate minerals that make up 51% of the earth's crust. * The w.
