Over 80 mode% of the clast consists of silica + plagioclase + K-Ba-feldspar. Plagioclase has chemical compositions near An87 with limited Ab-An zoning (An82–91; Table 3). We are grateful for loans of thin section from NASA/JSC (R.A. Zeigler, curator) for Apollo 15405 QMD. (1993) reported apatite but no merrillite in Apollo felsite 14161,7269, and likewise, Warren et al. 1988; Marvin et al. 2019). Some candidates for localities where the lunar silicic rocks occur have been identified from remote sensing data sets that combine infrared spectroscopy, gamma-ray spectroscopy, and topography. It is often porphyritic. 2006; Zeigler et al. Furthermore, olivine phyric basalt (OPB) is a clast-type included in several NWA 773 clan meteorites, and is interpreted as co-magmatic with the three gabbros (Valencia et al. Obsidian, igneous rock occurring as a natural glass formed by the rapid cooling of viscous lava from volcanoes. When such magma erupts to the surface, it creates a fine-grained rock that crystallizes quickly. 1977; Warren et al. The grain sizes of olivine phenocrysts are from 0.3 × 0.1 mm to 0.6 × 0.3 mm across. These petrological features are similar to other OG clasts in the NWA 773 clan (Fagan et al. Dacite is the volcanic equivalent of granodiorite.

Based on the evidence currently available, we favor the interpretation that the dacite clast formed in a system independent of the olivine gabbro → anorthositic gabbro → ferroan gabbro (pyroxene gabbro + symplectite + ARFe) trend. Lassen Volcano is part of the Cascade Range, a north-south linear chain of active and potentially active volcanoes in America's Pacific Northwest.

Dacitic magma is formed by the subduction of young oceanic crust under a thick felsic continental plate. 2019), but the modal abundances of silica are less and grain sizes are smaller than silica of the silicic clast. Fayalite, silica, and hedenbergitic pyroxene also occur in the dacite clast, but feldspars also are abundant in the clast, and the textures and formation processes are distinct.

In context|geology|lang=en terms the difference between andesite and dacite is that andesite is (geology) a class of fine-grained intermediate igneous rock, of volcanic origin, containing mostly plagioclase feldspar while dacite is (geology) an igneous, volcanic rock with a high iron content. Some of the silica in the clast is intergrown with feldspars, suggesting co-crystallization of silica with plagioclase and alkali feldspars during stages of crystallization from liquid. Instead of gold, Carney found an abundance of copper stain. Pre-1991 sulfur transfer between mafic injections and dacite magma in the Mt. 1990; Jolliff et al. We acknowledge the helpful comments from two anonymous reviewers and editorial handling by Noriko Kita. Quantitative analyses of minerals in the silicic clast were performed by wavelength dispersive spectroscopy using a JEOL JXA-8900 EPMA at Waseda University with (1) an accelerating voltage of 15 kV and a probe current of 2.0 × 10−8 A for feldspar, silica, pyroxene, olivine, and Fe-oxide, and (2) 7 kV and 2.0 × 10−8 A for Ca-phosphate.

Pyroxene also occurs as fine clusters of crystals disseminated among silica and feldspar near the right margin of the clast (< 100 μm; Px fine2 in Fig. Therefore, silicic igneous rocks formed by conditions and processes distinct from the settings typical of Earth. However, no direct textural evidence of SLI has been identified in the dacite. 2018). Each year on the first Sunday of March, members of the Don’s Club pour several tons of burning charcoal over this cliff to create a spectacular firefall. Uses. Areas where Raman peaks were mapped are color-coded in panel b, with maps e, f enclosed in the yellow box, map g in the blue box, and map h in the purple box. The diversity of clast-types in our polished thin section (PTS) is consistent with previous work on NWA 2727, except for the silicic clast, which has not been described previously (Bunch et al. Examples of this type of dacite outcrop are found in northwestern Montana and northeastern Bulgaria. 2009), Northwest Africa 11119 (NWA 11119; Srinivasan et al.

Petrologic description of samples of lunar silicic rocks is an essential step toward evaluating the igneous processes that led to granite formation on the Moon and other celestial bodies. Mafic. The differences in mineral modes reflect the high bulk SiO2 content of the dacite compared to the FG/ARFe clasts (Fagan et al. J Chem Phys 60:1873. https://doi.org/10.1063/1.1681287, Fagan TJ, Kashima D, Wakabayashi Y, Suginohara A (2014) Case study of magmatic differentiation trends on the Moon based on lunar meteorite Northwest Africa 773 and comparison with Apollo 15 quartz monzodiorite. All of the Ca-phosphate analyzed here by EPMA yielded apatite stoichiometry; merrillite was not identified. Usually coloured white, yellowish, pinkish, or gray, it is the volcanic equivalent of monzonite (q.v.). Where is quartz most commonly found? If the FG/ARFe immiscible inclusions coalesced, they might have formed a more coarse-grained rock similar to the dacite. 2000; Grove and Krawczynski 2009). In the FG/ARFe clasts, K-feldspar is more abundant than plagioclase, but the reverse is true for the dacite clast. 1990); terrestrial ferroan (TF) andesite/dacite (Shimazu et al. Dacite is a fine-grained igneous rock that is normally light in color. This clast is characterized as a dacite on the basis of the low-pressure origin indicated by cristobalite and tridymite combined with the bulk composition. The FeO content in plagioclase (1.15 wt%) is higher than those in the Apollo granite/felsite (0.06–0.79 wt%: Warren et al. Some time during the 1930’s Lava Cliffs became known as Dacite Cliffs. The finer-grained texture of the silicic clast indicates more rapid cooling history than those of the three gabbros. 1980; Lindstrom et al. The high silica content, high Fe# and Ti# of pyroxene in the clast are consistent with formation at late-stages of magmatic differentiation. 2d) and plagioclase (red in Fig. The harder igneous rock of the Tower is more resistant to erosion, and the gray columns of … © 2021 BioMed Central Ltd unless otherwise stated. 2003; Jolliff et al. All authors read and approved the final manuscript. Petrological descriptions of each lithology in the PTS are summarized below. 2c) occurs as both small and large crystals, ranging up to 1.6 mm across. Examples of this type of dacite outcrop are found in northwestern Montana and northeastern Bulgaria. 3d); (2) narrow domains enveloping thin plagioclase feldspar laths (~ 50 μm across) (labeled Si(2) in Fig. The dacite clast probably crystallized at a relatively fast cooling rate that resulted in incomplete transformation of the high-T polymorphs to quartz. White circle represents the silicic clast (this work). Lunar basalts form by volcanic eruptions from the interior after partial melting in the mantle and are concentrated on the nearside of the Moon, in and near the Procellarum-KREEP Terrane (PKT, with KREEP indicating enrichment in K, rare earth elements, and P) (Jolliff et al. 2005). Sci Adv 3:e1602365, Article 2003; Jolliff et al. The silicic clast occurs isolated in breccia, and has no spatial or zoning relationships with those gabbros. This firefall is the highlight of their all-day event at base camp. Dacite is a fine-grained igneous rock that is normally light in color. But before that, Shastina, along with the then forming Black Butte dacite plug dome complex to the west, created numerous pyroclastic flows that covered 43 sq mi (110 km2), including large parts of what is now Mount Shasta, California and Weed, California. The interlocking textures of the dacite clast are distinct from granulitic textures (mainly minerals having rounded shapes) associated with silicic rocks formed by impact, and no shock melt pockets were observed (Takeda 1986; Barrat et al. I. α and β quartz. 1992; Jolliff et al. 2014; Shaulis et al. 2009; Takeda et al. 3c, d. In this part of the clast, fine pyroxene crystals (< 100 μm; Px fine1 in Fig. The high Fe#99–100 of mafic silicates in dacite clast can be explained by crystallization from residual liquid after Mg-depletion by fractional crystallization. 2013; Fagan et al. Cookies policy. 1974, 1976). The symplectite and ARFe classifications of Fagan et al. Although FG is variable in mineral assemblage, mineral zoning, and texture, the ferroan composition of mafic minerals is common in the FG lithology. The authors declare that they have no competing interests. 2017), it has been well established both from crater frequency counting and isotopic ages that basalts of the lunar lowlands (maria) are younger than the highlands anorthosites (e.g., Nyquist and Shih 1992; Hiesinger et al. Factors controlling apatite vs. merrillite are in all likelihood connected to the relative abundances of volatile elements, which are concentrated in apatite, and of rare earth elements, which are concentrated in merrillite. Records indicate no gold, copper or silver has ever been found in sufficient quantity to justify these diggings. (2015) investigated the launch site of the NWA 773 using bulk composition, lunar global element maps (FeO, TiO2, and Th), and age constraints. Pyroxene (dark green in Fig. Turn left on Peralta Road (Forest Service Road No. 1991; Snyder et al. HN proposed the topic, conceived and designed the study. On the other hand, the possibility that the dacite might have formed by immiscibility of other magmatic system involving large-scale gravity separation of silica-rich melt from a parent melt remains plausible in view of the fact that the dacite composition plots on the edge of the miscibility gap of Roedder (1951) (see Appendix). In: Proceedings of the 16th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference, 1985, Houston, Texas. Dacite is a volcanic igneous rock which is rintermediate in composition between andesite and rhyolite. It is possible that immiscibility followed fractional crystallization. Some Examples of Extrusive Igneous rocks are andesite, basalt, dacite… Oceanic crust is hydrothermally altered causing addition of quartz and sodium. Anhedral crystals of plagioclase (red in Fig. In: Proceedings of the 21st lunar and planetary science conference, 1990, Houston, Texas, pp 101–118, Jolliff BL, Floss C, McCallum IS, Schwartz JM (1999) Geochemistry, petrology, and cooling history of 14161,7373: a plutonic lunar sample with textural evidence of granitic-fraction separation by silicate liquid immiscibility. This feud resulted in the death of Eli Koreavitch one of the miners who worked for Pete Carney. On May 14, 2013, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite acquired the image above, which highlights some of the distinctive features of a … Pyroxene (dark green grains in Fig. The mineral assemblage of this clast is similar to that of the OG, but the mineral textures and modal abundances are different. Generally very fine-grained, porphyritic rhyolite to dacite in small, irregular-shaped bodies formed as subvolcanic intrusions in volcanic fields of southern and western Arizona, or in concentrated zones of dikes in the Mohave and Black Mountains of northwestern Arizona.

Nevertheless, because of the moderate silica content, dacitic magma is quite viscous and therefore prone to explosive eruption. Immiscibility has been discussed as a possible explanation for the formation of lunar granites and the absence of intermediate lithologies (e.g., Jolliff 1991; Seddio et al. A notorious example of this is Mount St. Helens in which dacite domes formed from previous eruptions. In: Abstracts of the 38th lunar and planetary science conference, 2007, League City, Texas, p 1489, Jolliff BL (1991) Fragments of quartz monzodiorite and felsite in Apollo 14 soil partilces. Topics related to both Dacite and Igneous textures. The presence of multiple types of basalts indicates that some clasts of the NWA 773 clan formed initially from variable types of volcanism. 2b). 2016). However, this low-temperature crystallization model does not fit the dacite clast from NWA 2727 because the higher-temperature silica polymorphs cristobalite and tridymite occur along with quartz in the dacite. 1985; Gust and Arculus 1986; Imai et al. 1993; Seddio et al. 2003, in addition to Glotch et al. When the Tower formed around 50 million years ago, it was one to two miles below the Earth’s surface. 2015). In addition to the OG lithology, the NWA 773 clan contains a variety of basaltic clasts, feldspar + pyroxene gabbro, olivine-pyroxene-silica symplectites, and silica-bearing alkaline-phase-ferroan (ARFe) clasts. California Privacy Statement, 2016) supports the crustal melting model for the production of lunar granite from crustal protoliths by partial melting at temperatures below 1000 °C. In the case of Earth, granite formation is often associated with wet conditions during various stages of melting and crystallization (Campbell and Taylor 1983; Brown 2013). 2019). The presence of olivine phenocrysts and fine-grained groundmass consisting of pyroxene and plagioclase of this basaltic clast are similar to the olivine-phyric basalt (OPB) described by Valencia et al. 2013, 2015; Fagan et al. Part of (2019), the dacite clast appears to be a new lithology in the NWA 773 clan, which has not been described previously. The clast was identified in Northwest Africa 2727 (NWA 2727), which is included in the NWA 773 clan. Thus, it also has a ferroan composition like the dacite. Figure 1 shows false-color elemental mapping of Al (red), Mg (green), and Fe (blue) Kα x-rays, and distinguishes the main minerals of NWA 2727, as shown in the following colors: light green and blue colors indicate olivine; dark green and blue colors indicate pyroxene; red color indicates plagioclase.

Diorite is a coarse-grained igneous rock that forms when the magma remains below Earth's surface and cools slowly. Furthermore, we compare the silicic clast with other silica-bearing lithic clasts of the NWA 773 clan and other lunar and terrestrial samples to consider implications of the clast for the origin of silica-bearing igneous rocks in general. It is often found associated with andesite, and forms lava flows, dikes, and, in some cases, massive intrusions in the centres of old volcanoes. Furthermore, the bulk composition of the dacite (Mg# < 1) is much more ferroan than other NWA 773 clan lithologies that were analyzed by Valencia et al. Calzada-Diaz et al. Fe-oxides occur in trace abundances in the OG clast, and are located between coarse minerals. Andesite Basalt Dacite Diorite Gabbro Granite Granodiorite Ignimbrite Peridotite Rhyolite Syenite Trachyte. Some time during the 1930’s Lava Cliffs became known as Dacite Cliffs. In contrast, the surface of the Moon is dominated by anorthositic rocks in the highlands and basaltic rocks in the lowlands. 2013, 2015). Silica polymorphs were determined using micro-Raman spectroscopy in digital maps of three localities within the clast (Fig. Science 283:1142–1145, Bence AE, Papike JJ, Prewitt CT (1970) Apollo 12 clinopyroxene: chemical trends. Terms and Conditions, In: Proceedings of the 18th lunar and planetary science conference, 1987, Houston, Texas, pp 187–201, Snape JF, Nemchin AA, Bellucci JJ, Whitehouse MJ, Tartèse R, Barnes JJ, Anand M, Crawford IA, Joy KH (2016) Lunar basalt chronology, mantle differentiation and implications for determining the age of the Moon. One plagioclase-rich clast with texture similar to the AG was identified in the PTS. The dacite clast differs from the NWA 773 clan FG/ARFe clasts in the following: (1) plagioclase is more abundant than K-feldspar; (2) only apatite has been identified in the dacite clast, whereas the main Ca-phosphate in the ARFe lithology is merrillite; (3) feldspars and silica are much more abundant than mafic minerals in the dacite clast. 1993; Fagan et al. 2014). Thus, the dacite clast probably crystallized in a magmatic setting that was independent of the OG and FG/ARFe lithologies. The high Fe# and Ti# are consistent with late-stage crystallization in an igneous system (Fig. adjective. Olivine (light green grains in Fig. 1993; Seddio et al.

Examples of this type of dacite outcrop are found in northwestern Montana and northeastern Bulgaria. 3c, d). Conforms to HazCom 2012/United States Page 1 of 8 Safety Data Sheet Dacite Section 1. Hiroshi Nagaoka. Dacite is formed when a volcano erupts molten material (magma) with a relatively high silica and alkali content onto the surface, and that material solidifies. Dacite is a volcanic rock formed by rapid solidification of lava that is high in silica and low in alkali metal oxides. 2019). Dacite usually forms as an intrusive rock such as a dike or sill. 2019), textures in the dacite clast are consistent with formation by igneous crystallization from melt. 2b; 27 vol%) forms elongate crystals between coarser plagioclase. Geologists have studied the formation since the late 1800s, and today still wonder how it formed. (1983) identified apatite without merrillite in the granitic sample 14303,204. The bulk P2O5 content (1.3 wt%) in the dacite clast is higher than those (0.086–0.34 wt%) of other lithologies in NWA 773 clan and Apollo granite/felsite (0.05–0.20 wt%: Quick et al. In 1914, Pete Carney became involved in a feud with claimjumpers. (2018). Double ternary diagram which is used to classify igneous rocks based on mineralogic composition. Obsidian is extremely rich in silica (about 65 to 80 percent), is low in water, and has a chemical composition similar to rhyolite. For the most part, the anorthosites have crystallization ages prior to 4.3 Ga, whereas the main pulse of mare volcanism occurred from 3.9 to 3.2 Ga. Isotopic crystallization ages for a few lunar basalts are as young as 2.9–3.0 Ga (Borg et al. (2015). The presence of the dacite clast is, thus, consistent with a PKT origin for meteorites of the NWA 773 clan, as are the mafic composition, geochemical KREEP signature, and young crystallization age.
