ANDALUSITE IN PERALUMINOUS FELSIC IGNEOUS ROCKS INTR OD UCT IONPurposeAndalusite occurs as an accessory mineral in a wide rangeof felsic peraluminous {A/CNK ¼ molar [(Al2O3)/(CaO þ Na2O þ K2O)] > 1} extrusive and intrusiveigneous rocks. The purposes of this contribution are: (1) to present textural observations and chemical data from a wide range of andalusite-bearing felsic igneousrocks, including fine-grained glassy volcanics, anatecticleucosomes, fine-grained aplites, medium- to coarse-grained granitoids, and very coarse-grained granitepegmatites; (2) to discover the criteria (mineral assemblages, textures, chemical partitioning, and phase equilibriumconstraints) for distinguishing between magmatic, meta-morphic, and metasomatic andalusite; (3) to evaluate the conditions and controls that promote the formation of andalusite in naturallyoccurring felsic igneous rocks.
If andalusite can have a primary magmatic origin, its occurrence places important constraints on the T–P–Xconditions of magma crystallization.

The andalusitein CLA-12 is skeletal (Fig. 3c), suggesting formation dur-ing a temperature or pressure quench. Many subhedralor anhedral andalusites in felsic igneous rocks have pinkcores that are euhedral to subhedral (VIS-01, Fig. 3d),suggesting that those cores, at least, might be igneous.
Anhedral andalusite grain shapes may reflect late-stage grain interference during primary magmatic growth, theresult of a reaction relationship of an andalusite of anyorigin with the silicate melt phase, an originally anhedralxenocrystic morphology, or an originally euhedral xeno-crystic morphology out of equilibrium with the melt.
Distinctly anhedral andalusite grains, apparently out ofequilibrium with the felsic magma, include volcanic sam-ple BAR-01 (Fig. 3e) and plutonic sample ROT-05(Fig. 3f ).
State of aggregationAndalusite in felsic igneous rocks may occur as singlegrains (Figs 3a, b, d–f; 4a–d), isolated from other andalu-site grains by more common rock-forming minerals. Itmay also occur as clusters of small grains. In some clus-ters, the individual andalusite grains have random orien-tations relative to one another (Fig. 5a–d). Why should amodally scarce mineral cluster? Either the individualandalusites crystallized elsewhere and were brought tothat location by some physical process such as synneusisor settling, or they represent the sites of advanced diges-tion of pelitic xenoliths, or they nucleated and grew atthat position in the sample. These common clusters of Fig. 2. Andalusite grain sizes. Photomicrographs illustrating andalusite randomly oriented grains of andalusite may have genetic grains that are significantly larger than the average grain size of the rock, suggesting that they may not have the same origin as the other In other clusters, the individual andalusite grains are in minerals in these felsic igneous rocks.

Many andalusite grains in felsic igneous rocks have man-tles of muscovite, and these muscovite rims may consist of a single crystal or a polycrystalline aggregate. Figure 6 Euhedral andalusite in a felsic igneous rock may indicate combines the state of aggregation of andalusite grains a former cotectic or peritectic relationship with a silicate (above), and the common association of andalusite with melt phase; however, euhedral andalusite occurs both in muscovite, to establish a six-fold textural classification igneous and metamorphic rocks, and thus idiomorphic of andalusite. In some cases, more than one class of grain shapes alone are not diagnostic. Some of the anda- andalusite can occur in the same rock (e.g. sample GOT- lusites in volcanic samples, e.g. LON-01 (Fig. 3a), or 02 contains andalusite textural types S1, C1, and C2).

ANDALUSITE IN PERALUMINOUS FELSIC IGNEOUS ROCKS Figure 11b shows mean fluorine concentrations for the same coexisting micas. Of note is the wide range of Fcontents in the micas in these andalusite-bearing rocks,and the generally regular disposition of tie lines suggest-ing equilibrium compositions. Tie lines with distinctivelysteeper or shallower slopes suggest that the compositionof at least one mica in the assemblage has changed, andthat some degree of subsolidus re-equilibration of Fbetween coexisting micas may have taken place. Insuch cases, D Bt/Ms increases with subsolidus cooling because muscovite re-equilibrates more readily than bio-tite (Ferrow et al., 1990). Such disequilibrium between themicas may also raise questions about the origin of thecoexisting andalusite.
Samples with FBt/FMs <15 are VIL-14 and WOO-01, which appear to be otherwise unremarkable. Sampleswith FBt/FMs >38 are JAM-01, JAM-02, RIC-01,RIC-02, RIC-03, RIC-05, RIC-06, and NEV-02. Signif-icantly, seven of these samples are migmatites with lowFBt contents, and the other sample is a pegmatite (NEV-02). Sample CLA-05 has the lowest F contents in itscoexisting micas; in this respect, its similarity to the mig-matites suggests that it may also have an early anatecticorigin. The mean of all samples with average FBt/FMs>14 and <38 is 227  059 (n ¼ 31). In two sampleswith crossing tie lines (NEV-03, NEV-05), andalusiteoccurs in clusters with biotite-rich xenolithic materialand texturally (but not chemically) secondary muscovite.
Because all of these samples contain andalusite, high F is,apparently, not a precondition for the occurrence ofandalusite in felsic igneous rocks.
If all the analyzed samples had come from one differ- entiating pluton, such a regular disposition of tie linesmight be expected; however, given that the samples comefrom more than 40 localities of different types, the reg-ularity of the tie lines in Fig. 11a and b suggests animportant repetition of T–P–X conditions in andalusite-bearing peraluminous felsic igneous rocks through spaceand time. As a first-order approximation, we consider thebundles of roughly parallel tie lines (Fig. 11a and b) andthe samples with Ti and F partitioning between coexist-ing micas similar to those determined experimentally(Icenhower & London, 1995), as magmatic micas.
Figure 11c is similar to Fig. 11b, except that the verticalaxis is expanded and most of the tie lines have beenremoved. Additional plotted samples are from thetopaz-bearing two-mica Lake Lewis leucogranite in theSouth Mountain Batholith (Clarke & Bogutyn, 2003).

Sillimanite can occur as the concentrations are highest in those micas with the lowest only aluminosilicate phase (D'Amico et al., 1982–83a, FAp/FMica values. This relationship appears to be the 1982–83b; Pichavant et al., 1988), or it can occur with result of relatively constant fluorine concentrations in andalusite (Barker, 1987; Pichavant et al., 1988; Messina the apatites.

G ENET IC TYPE S OF A NDA LUS IT E IN FELSIC IGNEOUS ROCKSTheoretically, andalusites in felsic igneous rocks can fallinto three main genetic categories detailed below.
Type 1 Metamorphic (melt phase notinvolved in the formation of andalusite)Type 1a Metamorphic–in situ progradeBarrera et al. (1985) and Zaleski (1985) described theeffects of contact metamorphism in granites where anda-lusite formed as euhedral to subhedral prisms replacingoriginal biotite. None of the andalusite in our samplesappears to have formed in situ by thermal metamorphism Fig. 12. Fluorine in coexisting apatite, biotite, and muscovite. (a) F of a felsic igneous rock. In the sample most obviously FMs vs FAp/FBt with FBt contours. The systematic distribution of FBt affected by thermal metamorphism (WHI-01; Fig. 9g), contours suggests equilibrium among the three phases. High FAp/FMs pre-existing andalusite has been partially converted to and FAp/FBt ratios correlate with low bulk fluorine contents as mon- itored by F in biotite. (b) FAp/FMs–FAp/FBt with FMs contours. Again,high FAp/FMs and FAp/FBt ratios correlate with low bulk fluorinecontents, and the systematic distribution of contours suggests equili-brium among these three phases.

Barker (1987) has argued that, on the basis of size igneous rocks.

Otherwise, none of our andalusite appears to haveformed by inversion from sillimanite.

Path 3 reaches Al2SiO5 saturationeither by a combination of feldspar fractionation and water saturation, or by decrease in pressure causing a decrease in water and aluminasolubility.
