INTERPRETATION OF THE COMPOSITION OF LITHIUM MICAS By MARGARET D. FOSTER ABSTRACT A study of more than analyses of lithium micas reported in the literature indicates that, compositionally, most of the lithium micas may be interpreted as if derived by isomorphous replace­ ment from muscovite or by: Get this from a library!

May 01,  · Compositions and pleochroism of micas in fourteen peraluminous alkali-feldspar granites in the eastern part of the Late Proterozoic Arabian Shield are unlike those of micas (principally biotite) in most calc-alkaline granitoid rocks. Compositions of these micas are distinguished by elevated abundances of Li2O, F, and numerous cations and by low MgO by: M. D.
