Weathering Feldspar Minerals

Feldspars in Weathering SpringerLink

Feldspar weathering occurs via dissolution of all components into solution, with the subsequent precipitation of secondary minerals from solution, and it is the feldspars dissolution rate which controls the overall rate of feldspar weathering. The rate of feldspar dissolution is controlled by the kinetics of surface reactions at the mineral

Feldspar an overview ScienceDirect Topics

During chemical weathering of primary silicate minerals desilication occurs. For example, the weathering and desilication pathway of feldspars in soils is shown schematically in Fig. 1 . Weathering releases highly mobile basic cations (Ca 2 +,Mg 2 +,K +,and Na + ), moderately mobile silicic acid (H 4 SiO 4 ), and relatively immobile Al

Weathering microenvironments on feldspar surfaces

The mechanisms by which coatings develop on weathered grain surfaces, and their potential impact on rates of fluid-mineral interaction, have been investigated by examining feldspars from a 1.1 ky old soil in the Glen Feshie chronosequence, Scottish highlands.
