Critical phenomena originating magmatic rocks in western Sicily

Giuseppe Lucido, Roberto Triolo
Geochemical Journal, Vol. 18, No. 3, P. 125-133, 1984


The behaviour of a model magma in the vicinity of a critical region is in agreement with results of studies of structures in the melt in basaltic rocks from Sicily. The behaviour of ionic-non ionic fluid mixtures simulating a magma has been analysed in the light of results obtained recently with simple statistical mechanical approximations. It is suggested that the Sicilian magma is to be considered as an extremely rare natural example of two immiscible liquids having almost consolute composition.
