Much of our knowledge about the Earth’s crust and mantle geodynamics is based on the study of mineral species and associated textures. Crystal abundances, chemistry, sizes, shapes, and spatial orientations represent the specific paragenesis of magmas during transport in the crust, whereas metamorphic minerals are key to investigating the mountain-building orogenic process. The vast majority […]
