High resolution compositional maps of quartz inclusions in monazite, Tusas Mountains, Northern New Mexico.


Th map (upper) reveals complex, nanoscale compositional structure in single monazite grain. Y map (lower) reveals syn-kinematic growth of high Y monazite along elongation direction, and tracking reactions involving the breakdown of garnet or xenotime.
