Dolomite and ankerite are much less abundant than calcite and ferroan calcite in the deepwater sandstone from Es3 in the Dongying Sag. The colour of the ankerite cements is blue in the stained thin sections, while dolomite cement is unstained. difference between ferroan dolomite and ankerite what is the difference between watheroo dolomite and watheroo minerals? Watheroo Dolomite and the products from Watheroo Minerals are very different. Watheroo dolomite is a crushed and screened dolomitic limestone.
New field, petrographic, XRD, and geochemical data demonstrate a spatial, temporal, and geochemical link between replacement dolomite and local mafic igneous dikes that pervasively intrude the platform. Dikes are dominated by strongly altered plagioclase and clinopyroxene. Significantly, where ferroan dolomite is present, it borders dikes. difference between ferroan dolomite and ankerite

Thus cationsize considerations, however Ankerite. It also occurs in carbonatites. In sediments it occurs as authigenic, diagenetic minerals and as a product of hydrothermal deposition. It is one of the minerals of the dolomitesiderite series, to which the terms brownspar, pearlspar and bitterspar have been historically loosely applied. difference between ferroan dolomite and ankerite A recent question about an unknown crystal in an Indiana geode brought up the subject of ankerite vs. ferroan dolomite. While visiting the Illinois Geological Survey building a number of years ago, a geode containing dark brown, saddle shaped crystals were labeled ankerite. The maximumintensity peak for ankerite standard, a ferroan dolomite, has a dspacing of 2. 899 angstroms. The Garrison dolomite crystal structure contains sufficient iron to cause the maximumintensity peak for this aggre gate to shift to a dspacing of 2. 904 angstroms. Staining Carbonate Minerals with Alizarin red S and potassium ferricyanide. The organic dye Alizarin red S (ARS) will produce a pink to red stain on any carbonate that will react with dilute acid. The reaction between carbonates and acid is usually controlled (1 to 2 minutes at 25oC for thin sections) so that the more reactive minerals, Highpressure structural study of dolomite and ankerite Article in American Mineralogist 77(3): January 1992 with 17 Reads Cite this publication
