Experimental investigation of yugawaralite-wairakite equilibrium
American Mineralogist (October 1982) 67 (9-10): 937-943


Yugawaralite (CaAl (sub 2) Si (sub 6) O (sub 16) .4H (sub 2) O) occurs commonly in geothermal areas with other zeolites such as laumontite and wairakite. Present and previous experiments define an invariant point where yugawaralite, wairakite and laumonite are stable. The invariant point is at 234 degrees C and 550 bars where PH (sub 2) O = P (sub total) . The data are consistent with geothermal conditions above a depth of 0.5 km.
