Albitization may also occur by partial dissolution of detrital feldspars, followed by precipitation of.
Feldspar: The most common mineral family, the feldspars come in a variety of colors, including pink, white or gray. The most distinctive property is the tendency of the mineral to split or cleave in two directions. One variety, plagioclase feldspar may exhibit very fine lines, called striations, on some surfaces. These look like record grooves. Pb isotope compositions of detrital K-feldspars and U-Pb ages of detrital zircons are used as indicators for determining the sources of Peoria Loess deposited during the last glacial period (late Wisconsin, ca. ka) in Nebraska and western Iowa. Our new data indicate that only loess adjacent to the Platte River has Pb isotopic characteristics suggesting derivation from this river.
The assembly of eastern Gondwana involved the amalgamation of Indo-Antarctica and Australo-Antarctica along the Kuunga orogen. The location of the suture or sutures between Indo-Antarctica and Australo-Antarctica within the Kuunga orogen remains debated as key geological relationships are concealed beneath ice. The most recent interpretation identifies the ‘Mirny Fault’ as a key suture. Staining is the most reliable technique for identification of detrital or authigenic dolomite (Cretaceous Rieselberger Sandstone, Germany). A large grain of definte metamorphic origin. Consists of numerous, elongate, crenulate quartz crystals welded together. Most probably this is a fragment of a sheared metaquartzite (Oligocene Tongriano Fm.

Hardcover, Amsterdam: Elsevier Publishing Company, Very Good in Very Good identification of detrital feldspars. book jacket. Developments in Sedimentology 6. This book provides the research worker in the fields of sedimentology, soil science and the industry dealing with feldspars or feldspar bearing sands with the information currently available on feldspar identification techniques, on the properties of feldspars.
Identification of the structures of detrital feldspars may enable recognition of genetic regimes and be useful in provenance interpretation and mineral province definition. A 2‐peak method of X‐ray diffraction (XRD) determination as a variant of an earlier proposed 3‐peak method of structural state determination is used in this study.
Detrital feldspars most commonly undergo dissolution or alteration and replacement in subsurface settings, yet in many sandstones one also can find examples of authigenic feldspar cements.
Such cements, in almost all cases, are either albite (the sodic end-member feldspar) or orthoclase (the K-spar end member)—see Chapter 2 for more details.

van der Plas. Elsevier, Amsterdam,pp., FELDSPARS The latest developments in the study of the different phases that belong to the feldspar family necessitate a revision of the conception of older textbooks. It would lead too far to discuss the details of the present situation, the more so because a book on detrital feldspar identification for sedimentologists and soil.
Feldspars in sedimentary rocks can be of detrital and diagenetic origins. Feldspars are a group of alumino-silicate minerals whose structures are composed of corner-sharing AlO 4 and SiO 4 tetrahedra linked in an infinite, three-dimensional array.
Charge balancing, M cations with radius greater than Å occupy large, irregular cavities in the. Alkali feldspars collected from a working quarry in the Shap Granite are perthites composed of two types of microtextures: primary igneous and deuterically altered.
Primary igneous microtextures, which formed during early cooling of the pluton, are composed of albite exsolution lamellae in tweed orthoclase. Although plagioclase feldspars will weather to form clay minerals, they are resistant enough that plagioclase grains forms a significant component of many detrital sediments and sedimentary rocks.
Calcium-rich plagioclases tend to be characteristic of intermediate to mafic igneous rocks, intermediate- to high-grade metamorphic rocks, and. In most layers, except for pure clay laminas, there are numerous detrital quartz grains (approximately 45% vol.), kaolinite-forming pseudomorphs after feldspars, amphibole group minerals, mica flakes, carbonate, and gypsum crystals, as well as zircon and titanium oxides.
In general, the detrital material is quite well rounded and poorly sorted.

van der; Author. We determined Pb isotopic compositions of detrital K‐feldspars from the Yinggehai‐Song Hong Basin to understand the sedimentary provenance and to test models of drainage patterns in East Asia. The Pb isotopic data show that detritus in the northern basin was mainly derived from the Red River system since the late Oligocene, and that the Red.
K-feldspar is a common detrital mineral in sandstones. It contains little U or Th, and hence the common Pb isotope composition of unaltered K-feldspar is that of the source rock. 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. Feldspars usually are white or nearly white, though they may be clear or light shades of orange or buff. They usually have a glassy luster. Feldspar is called a rock-forming mineral, very common, and usually makes up a large part of the rock.
In sum, any glassy mineral that's slightly softer than quartz is very likely considered a feldspar. The magnetic data of the quartz and feldspars are summarized in Table 1, and that of the untreated bulk samples are in Table 2.
The ARM intensities of the quartz and feldspars range from × 10 −5 to × 10 −4 Am 2 /kg, and SIRM intensities from × 10 −4 to × 10 −3 Am 2 /kg (Table 1).

Solution Suspension What is the most important detrital rock formation that can be used for identification? Sorting. This is a type of identification. Is the rock a mixture of all grain sizes or is it just one grain?Alkali feldspars tend to display simple Carlsbad twinning, though Carlsbad twinning can be found in all feldspars (Rothwell,p).
Grid (cross-hatched polysynthetic) twinning in two directions is a diagnostic characteristic of microcline, and lamellar (multiple) twinning occurs mainly in plagioclase (Rothwell,p).
