Synthesis of Selected Minerals (Crystals) in Laboratory and Industry

  • Swapna Mukherjee


Experimental work involves simulating igneous or metamorphic conditions with specialized machines. Samples may include synthetic minerals or mixes of minerals, fluids such as H2O and/or CO2 or actual rock compositions. In the lab, samples of a known composition can be held at known pressure and temperatures, and results can be analyzed. Certain processes (melting, crystallization, diffusion) can also be simulated. All these processes leading to synthetic mineral preparation will be discussed in this chapter.
