Most sedimentary diagenesis involves recrystalJization or overgrowths on original minerals, or the growth of new phases. This new growth may trap fluid as inclusions that provide data not only on the nature, composition, pressure, and density of the fluids present during diagenesis, but particularly on the temperature at which the host crystals grew. As most optical methods of study require inclusions >1-2 μm in diameter, fine-grained products of diagenesis, in the 10-20 μm range, seldom provide useful material. The possibilities of finding inclusions of useful size increase as the size of the host crystal increases. In spite of this...
