Seite 173 - wide upper valley of the Clearwater River, a most perfectly exposed series of limestones, shales, and sandstones of Upper Cambrian and later formations was found, which cleared up the relations of the upper portion of the Glacier Lake section to the Ordovician above.
Seite 32 - and biotite, which is apparently new. A study of the relations of the minerals indicates that the rock originally consisted of augite and chrysolite and was nearly completely consolidated as such. These minerals were then attacked, with lowering temperature, probably by their own interstitial liquid as it changed in composition, and were replaced by monticellite,
Seite 33 - melilites so formed are analogous to natural melilites in composition and optical properties. It is thus proved experimentally that nephelite reacts with diopside to form melilite, a reaction analogous to that which is considered to have taken place between augite and alkalic liquid in the natural rocks. This reaction is of the nature of a
Seite 32 - and biotite with marialite, perovskite and titaniferous magnetite as minor products of the reaction. The monticellite is itself replaced by melilite and biotite and the melilite-biotite rock is the end product of the replacement. The replacement was accomplished by an alkalic liquid (magma) which formed monticellite from augite by desilicating it and later gave rise to melilite and the more definitely
