Book: Geochemistry of chromium in the Earth’s mantle

Here one of the chapter of the book.

▪ Matrosova, E.A., Bobrov, A.V., Bindi, L. (2020): Geochemistry of Chromium in the Earth’s Mantle. Geochemistry of Chromium in the Earth's Mantle, Springer Geology, Ed., 128 pp. [5-36].

The most important chromium-bearing phases in the Earth’s upper mantle are chrome spinel, Cr-bearing pyroxene, and Knr-garnet, which are replaced with Knr-Maj garnet, MgCr2O4 with the calcium titanate-type structure, and (Mg,Fe)2SiO4 wadsleyite/ringwoodite. Ferropericlase (Mg,Fe)O and (Mg,Fe)SiO3 bridgmanite may be considered as the host phases for chromium under the lower mantle conditions. Below we review the information about the high-pressure chromium-bearing phases in the Earth's mantle. Since chromite (Fe,Mg)(Cr,Al)2O4 containing up to ~55 wt% Cr2O3 is the major ore mineral of chromium and is an accessory phase in many ultramafic rocks, the largest chromite deposits and the models of their formation are considered.
