Abstract

A wide range of intergrowth microstructures were defined with TEM in 8 pyroxenes partially altered to other minerals. A number of different paths for pyroxene hydration occur such as: pyroxene rt arrow amphibole, pyroxene rt arrow sheet, pyroxene rt arrow amphibole rt arrow sheet, etc. Failure to recognize pyribole intergrowths could produce errors in some geochemical techniques. -K.A.R.
