Abstract:
In three veins from the lower part of Deep Sea Drilling Project Hole 504B, 298 meters below the top of basement, primary augite is replaced by aegirine-augite. This transformation occurs only in subophitic basalts, at the contact with veins which always include a dark-olive, Mg-rich clay mineral.
Talc occurs in one of these veins; it can be regarded either as a vein constituent or as a product of augite alteration.
Melanite (Ca,Fe,Ti-rich garnet) appears in only one of these three veins, where a Ca-carbonate is associated with a Mg-rich clay mineral. The occurrence of melanite in Hole 504B could be due to the conjunction of particular conditions: (1) basalt with a subophitic texture, (2) presence of hydrothermal fluids carrying Ca, Fe, Si, Ti, Al, Mg, and Na, (3) rather high temperatures. Possibly the melanite and aegirine-augite formed by deuteric alteration.
