Abstract

The oxidation of iron-rich olivine to produce magnetite is a model system for the study of phase transitions involving mass transport. High-resolution lattice images of have been obtained from magnetite precipitates in naturally modified iron-rich olivines. The magnetite/olivine interface is shown to be extremely sharp. Steps and misfit dislocations are present at the interface.
