This chapter presents a range of geological and petrological evidence that can be used to decide on the process shaping the geochemistry of a rock suite. In turn, we discuss the evidence for crystallization, melting and mixing (and assimilation), and we show which of the laws discussed in Chaps. 6 and 11 are more appropriate for each situation.
