  • Distribution of siderophile and chalcophile elements in serpentinites of
           the oceanic lithosphere as an insight into the magmatic and crustal
           evolution of mantle peridotites
    • Authors: S. A. Silantyev; I. V. Kubrakova; O. A. Tyutyunnik
      Pages: 1019 - 1034
      Abstract: The paper reports result of comparative analysis of the distribution of siderophile (Au, Pt, Pd, Co, Ni, and Cr) and chalcophile (Ag, Cd, Sb, Pb, Zn, Cu, As, and S) elements in ultramafic rock samples of various types of abyssal peridotites. One of the objectives of this research was to obtain reference estimates for the concentrations of siderophile and chalcophile elements in the two end members defining the geochemical evolutionary trends of the material of the suboceanic mantle: a sample of insignificantly depleted mantle material (spinel lherzolite) and extensively carbonated serpentinite after harzburgite, which was formed at the “endpoint” of the ascent of mantle material to the seafloor surface. The distribution of siderophile and chalcophile elements is proved to record information on the whole compositional evolution of abyssal peridotites corresponding to the trajectory of their exhumation from mantle depth levels to seafloor outcrops. These data indicate that the bulk-rock compositional parameters of abyssal peridotites can be utilized to estimate the contribution of magmatic and hydrothermal process to the distribution of siderophile and chalcophile elements.

  • Composition and conditions of crystallization of zircon from the
           rare-metal ores of the Gremyakha–Vyrmes Massif, Kola Peninsula
    • Authors: N. V. Sorokhtina; L. N. Kogarko; A. K. Shpachenko; V. G. Senin
      Pages: 1035 - 1048
      Abstract: The first data on the composition and inner structure of zircon, one of the main ore minerals of the rare-metal metasomatites of the Gremyakha–Vyrmes alkaline-ultramafic massif, are reported. Early zircon generations are enriched in Y and REE and contain numerous inclusions of rock-forming and accessory minerals of metasomatites, as well as syngenetic fluid inclusions of calcite, thorite and thorianite. Late generations differ in the elevated Hf content and contain no inclusions. The elevated concentrations of Ca and Th in the central zones of crystals are related to the presence of numerous micron-sized inclusions of calcite and thorium phases. All zircon varieties have extremely low U and Pb contents. Concentrations and distribution patterns of incompatible and rare-earth elements in zircon from the metasomatites of the Gremyakha–Vyrmes Massif are similar to those of syenite pegmatites and magmatic carbonatites around the world. Mineral from these associations shows a positive Ce anomaly and elevated HREE contents. According to the compositions of zircon and thorite inclusion in it and experimental data on the simultaneous synthesis of these minerals, the crystallization temperature of zircon was 700–750°С. Using Ti-in-zircon temperature dependence, late zurcon was formed at temperature of 700–750°С. The rare-metal metasomatites are formed at the final stages of the massif formation, presumably after foidolites. Carbonatites could initiate metasomatic reworking of foidolites and accumulation of trace metals in them. The evolution of the primary alkaline–ultramafic melt toward the enrichment in trace elements was mainly controlled by crystallization differentiation.

  • Quantitative parameters of Pleistocene pelagic sedimentation in the
           Atlantic Ocean
    • Authors: M. A. Levitan; T. N. Gel’vi
      Pages: 1049 - 1060
      Abstract: Lithological–facies maps of Eopleistocene and Neopleistocene sediments (with 10 and 20 m isopachs) are compiled for the pelagic part of the Atlantic Ocean based on materials recovered by 283 ocean drilling sites. Data for both maps were calculated using A.B. Ronov’s volumetric method. The calculated results include such quantitative sedimentation parameters of major sediment types as the areas covered by these sediments, their volumes, masses of the dry sedimentary material, and masses of sedimentary material deposited per specified time unit. These parameters are compared for both Eopleistocene and Neopleistocene time, and the data are utilized to separately interpret the results for terrigenous, carbonate, and siliceous sediments. The supply of terrigenous material is proved to have been enhanced in the Pleistocene as a result of both tectonic uplift of continents and climatic changes, including intensification of continental glaciation at high latitudes in both hemispheres. The growth in the productivity of carbonate plankton was overridden by growing generation of bottom and deep water masses and ensuing intensification of the dissolution of pelagic carbonates. The productivity of siliceous plankton practically did not change, perhaps, because of a favorable combination of the supply of dissolved silica and other nutrients from both West and East Antarctica.

  • Distribution of REE, Y, Sc, and Th in the unique complex rare-metal ores
           of the Tomtor deposit
    • Authors: A. V. Lapin; A. V. Tolstov; I. M. Kulikova
      Pages: 1061 - 1078
      Abstract: The REE (Ln), Y, Sc, and Th distribution in the unique complex rare-metal ores of the Tomtor deposit is considered. Significant variability of these components and REE composition is revealed. Ore blocks with elevated Y and HREE contents are identified among prevailing LREE-enriched ores. It is established that the REE variations in the ores are correlated with evolution of REE carriers during epigenetic transformations of the carbonatite weathering products, in particular, with a replacement of Ce-bearing minerals (monazite and florencite) by Y-bearing mineral, xenotime. It is found that LREE and HREE exhibit different behavior during formation of the Tomtor ores, which is expressed in the inert behavior and residual accumulation of Ce-group REE at essential introduction of Y, HREE, Sc, and Th during epigenetic transformation of weathering products of carbonatites, which represent one of the main factors of the formation of the unique rare-metal ores of the Tomtor deposit.

  • Character of spatiotemporal variations in the chemical composition of lake
           water under the influence of emission from copper–nickel plants:
           Prediction of acidification
    • Authors: N. A. Gashkina; T. I. Moiseenko
      Pages: 1079 - 1093
      Abstract: In this paper, we analyze the influence of variations in the emission of sulfur dioxide and solid substances by the Pechenganikel and Severonikel copper–nickel plants in Murmansk oblast on the chemical composition of lake water and development of acidification. The dynamics of ~100 lakes examined in 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, and 2009 and response of the chemical composition of the lake waters on the impact of acidifying substances was explored depending on the magnitude of load (distance from the plants), geologically controlled vulnerability of the lake catchments to acid precipitation, and the size of the lakes. Possible further changes in the sulfate concentration and pH values of lake waters were estimated for scenarios assuming an increase or a decrease in sulfur dioxide emission from the plants. It was shown that, in the zone of maximum and high load, a 20% change in sulfur dioxide emission will result in a mean change in sulfate concentration of ±8 μeq/L (which is comparable with the regional background) and a change in pH value of ±0.1 in acid-sensitive lakes and will have almost no effect on these parameters in lakes insensitive to acid precipitation.

  • Processes of the development of the molecular world at early stages of its
           formation: Evidence from the investigation of the behavior of the
           vibrational entropy of molecules
    • Authors: V. I. Baranov; L. A. Gribov; I. V. Mikhailov
      Pages: 929 - 935
      Abstract: We analyzed the possibility of explaining empirical relations in the evolution of the molecular world on the basis of fundamental physical laws and theories of the behavior of the entropy of a system. Quantitative expressions were evaluated describing the entropy of internal motion of atoms in a molecular ensemble (vibrational entropy), which is a term of total entropy with a clear physical meaning. It was shown that vibrational entropy is controlled primarily by the structure of the compound rather than the number and identity of atoms in the molecule. During the early stages of evolution, the appearance of acyclic structures is more advantageous than that of cyclic structures. An increase in the complexity of the molecular world inevitably leads to the appearance of molecules with a complex skeleton formed mainly by bonds of the same elasticity as C–C. The necessity of helical structures, whose spatial elasticity is provided by hydrogen bonds, was explained.

  • Magmatic evolution of the material of the Earth’s lower mantle:
           Stishovite paradox and origin of superdeep diamonds (Experiments at
           24–26 GPa)
    • Authors: Yu. A. Litvin; A. V. Spivak; L. S. Dubrovinsky
      Pages: 936 - 947
      Abstract: The ultrabasic–basic magmatic evolution of the lower mantle material includes important physicochemical phenomena, such as the stishovite paradox and the genesis of superdeep diamonds. Stishovite SiO2 and periclase–wüstite solid solutions, (MgO · FeO)ss, associate paradoxically in primary inclusions of superdeep lower mantle diamonds. Under the conditions of the Earth’s crust and upper mantle, such oxide assemblages are chemically impossible (forbidden), because the oxides MgO and FeO and SiO2 react to produce intermediate silicate compounds, enstatite and ferrosilite. Experimental and physicochemical investigations of melting phase relations in the MgO–FeO–SiO2–CaSiO3 system at 24 GPa revealed a peritectic mechanism of the stishovite paradox, (Mg, Fe)SiO3 (bridgmanite) + L = SiO2 + (Mg, Fe)O during the ultrabasic–basic magmatic evolution of the primitive oxide–silicate lower mantle material. Experiments at 26 GPa with oxide–silicate–carbonate–carbon melts, parental for diamonds and primary inclusions in them, demonstrated the equilibrium formation of superdeep diamonds in association with ultrabasic, (Mg, Fe)SiO3 (bridgmanite) + (MgO · FeO)ss (ferropericlase), and basic minerals, (FeO · MgO)ss (magnesiowüstite) + SiO2 (stishovite). This leads to the conclusion that a peritectic mechanism, similar to that responsible for the stishovite paradox in the pristine lower mantle material, operates also in the parental media of superdeep diamonds. Thus, this mechanism promotes both the ultrabasic–basic evolution of primitive oxide–silicate magmas in the lower mantle and oxide–silicate–carbonate melts parental for superdeep diamonds and their paradoxical primary inclusions.

  • Carbon isotopic composition of diamonds in Ukraine and their probable
           polygenetic nature
    • Authors: V. N. Kvasnitsa; V. I. Silaev; I. V. Smoleva
      Pages: 948 - 963
      Abstract: The paper presents newly obtained data on the mineralogical and geochemical characteristics of Ukrainian endogenic and supergenic diamonds, including pioneering data on the carbon isotopic composition of individual diamond crystals. The endogenic diamonds occur as euhedral microcrystals (their morphology varies from octahedral to rhombododecahedral and cubic) with broadly varying concentrations of the structural nitrogen admixture and with mostly low aggregation of nitrogen centers. According to their carbon isotopic composition, Ukrainian diamonds range from kimberlitic–lamproitic to metamorphic and even carbonado-like, i.e., are polygenetic. Our data confirm the earlier conclusion that the supergenic diamonds are of impact genesis.

  • Olivine-bearing rocks of the Lapland granulite belt (Baltic Shield)
    • Authors: E. N. Terekhov; T. F. Shcherbakova; A. N. Konilov
      Pages: 964 - 978
      Abstract: Olivine-bearing varieties of garnet–clinopyroxene crystalline schists of the Lapland granulite belt have been studied in detail for the first time. Two types of olivine (iron mole fractions of 27 and 38%) are distinguished. Olivine with lower Fe content occurs as inclusions in clino- and orthopyroxene and in terms of СаО and Cr contents is close to magmatic minerals. Olivine with high Fe content presumably suffered highand moderate-temperature metamorphism. The olivine-bearing rocks contain several grains of omphacite with 30–37 mol % jadeite and garnet with 44–50 mol % pyrope, which can be regarded as relict assemblages of the early stage of eclogitization of a magmatic protolith. The presence of symplectites indicates their retrograde transformation during decompression. The protoliths of the studied rocks could be olivine gabbronorites and pyroxenites. It was found that the rocks contain high-alumina minerals: corundum, spinel, and sapphirine. In addition, Al2O3 content in some amphibole grains is as high as 19 wt %. This indicates that the ascent of the deep-seated rocks was accompanied by interaction with Al-rich fluid. The positive Eu anomaly in the olivine-bearing rocks and some of their minerals is indicative of the reducing character of fluid. Activation of fluid reworking leading to the formation and transformation of the olivine-bearing rocks, transfer of alumina and its precipitation at different depths are related to the processes at the base of the Paleoproterozoic rift system of Karelides.

  • Gold transport during magmatic degassing: Model experiments
    • Authors: K. I. Shmulovich; P. G. Bukhtiyarov; E. S. Persikov
      Pages: 979 - 988
      Abstract: Interaction of metallic gold with (Na, K)Cl salt melts was investigated by the weight-loss method at 700–1000°C using silica glass ampoules. Interaction was not detected in hermetic evacuated ampoules over the whole temperature interval and even after the addition of 5 wt % Na2SO4 as a possible oxidizer to the salt. Gold solubility increased sharply in open ampoules, but this was accompanied by the evaporation of salt melt and, possibly, AuCl x . The limiting gold solubility in the salt melt at 860°C was estimated as 1 wt % or 10000 ppm. The model of gold transport in a gas phase during magmatic degassing invokes shallow gold extraction by salt melt, melt evaporation, and removal of precipitated metallic particles by the gas phase.

It was shown that trace element concentrations in coals and oil shales have the better correlation with the upper crustal values, whereas trace elements in oils correlate well with the lower crustal values. The statistically significant, yet poorer correlation was observed for trace element compositions of oils and living matter as compared to correlations between oils and lower crust. The results suggest that oils are compositionally more homogeneous on a basin scale and possibly have more heterogeneous composition in different petroleum basins. A suite of characteristic trace elements (Cs, Rb, K, U, V, Cr, and Ni) that was used for analysis allowed a consistent interpretation of the relative upper and lower crustal contributions to the trace element composition of oils.

  • Tritium in the snow cover at mid-taiga landscapes in central Yakutia
    • Authors: V. N. Makarov
      Pages: 1005 - 1010
      Abstract: The paper presents data on the distribution of tritium, a hydrogen radioactive isotope, in the snow cover of mid-taiga landscapes in central Yakutia. Regional tritium escape to the atmosphere in the late 20th century and its accumulation in the snow cover resulted from regional atmospheric transfer and corresponded to the concentration of this isotope in the snow cover at the South Pole. Tritium concentration in the snow cover had almost tripled by 2013. Tritium concentration in the snow cover is correlated with the human population of the settlement zone. The long-term anthropogenic contamination in the area is caused first of all by atmospheric fallouts of radioactive products of the 2011 Fukushima accident.

  • Some general relations of the development of complex molecular objects at
           early stages of biosphere formation as a consequence of the physical
           properties of condensed medium

      Pages: 1011 - 1018
      Abstract: We analyzed the character of molecular transformations under conditions of condensed media, in which intermolecular interactions always occur. It was shown that, instead of discrete transfer of external energy into the molecule, the energy characteristics of the condensed medium (appearance of zones) could result in gradual accumulation of internal energy in reaction centers owing to sequential thermal collisions with particles of the medium initiating the chemical reaction. This does not require high temperatures. The established physical properties related to the energy characteristics of condensed media could play an important role in molecular transformations and, consequently, formation of complex molecular objects at early stages of biosphere formation.

  • Diamonds in the products of the 2012–2013 Tolbachik eruption (Kamchatka)
           and mechanism of their formation

      Abstract: The origin of diamonds in the lava and ash of the recent Tolbachik eruption of 2012–2013 (Kamchatka) is enigmatic. The mineralogy of the host rocks provides no evidence for the existence of the high pressure that is necessary for diamond formation. The analysis of carbon isotope systematics showed a similarity between the diamonds and dispersed carbon from the Tolbachik lava, which could serve as a primary material for diamond synthesis. There are grounds to believe that the formation of Tolbachik diamonds was related to fluid dynamics. Based on the obtained results, it was suggested that Tolbachik microdiamonds were formed as a result of cavitation during the rapid movement of volcanic fluid. The possibility of cavitation-induced diamond formation was previously theoretically substantiated by us and confirmed experimentally. During cavitation, ultrahigh pressure is generated locally (in collapsing bubbles), while the external pressure is not critical for diamond synthesis. The conditions of the occurrence of cavitation are rather common in geologic processes. Therefore, microdiamonds of such an origin may be much more abundant in nature than was supposed previously.

  • Micro- and nano-inclusions in a superdeep diamond from São Luiz,
    • Authors: Hiroyuki Kagi; Dmitry A. Zedgenizov; Hiroaki Ohfuji; Hidemi Ishibashi
      Pages: 834 - 838
      Abstract: We report cloudy micro- and nano-inclusions in a superdeep diamond from São-Luiz, Brazil which contains inclusions of ferropericlase (Mg, Fe)O and former bridgmanite (Mg, Fe)SiO3 and ringwoodite (Mg, Fe)2SiO4. Field emission-SEM and TEM observations showed that the cloudy inclusions were composed of euhedral micro-inclusions with grain sizes ranging from tens nanometers to submicrometers. Infrared absorption spectra of the cloudy inclusions showed that water, carbonate, and silicates were not major components of these micro- and nano-inclusions and suggested that the main constituent of the inclusions was infrared-inactive. Some inclusions were suggested to contain material with lower atomic numbers than that of carbon. Mineral phase of nano- and micro-inclusions is unclear at present. Microbeam X-ray fluorescence analysis clarified that the micro-inclusions contained transition metals (Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu, Zn) possibly as metallic or sulfide phases. The cloudy inclusions provide an important information on the growth environment of superdeep diamonds in the transition zone or the lower mantle.

      Abstract: In this contribution, we considered the character of carbon nanoparticle formation in the cosmos and during volcanic eruptions of a certain type and compared it with existing methods of synthesis in nanotechnology. Using the methods of electron diffraction and Raman spectroscopy, we investigated nanodiamond samples synthesized by hydrodynamic cavitation in various hydrocarbon liquids. Different forms of nanometer-sized carbon were distinguished, including complex fullerenes, nanodiamonds, and a face-centered cubic (fcc) carbon phase. The synthesized nanodiamonds were doped with silicon, their photoluminescence spectra were analyzed, and application of the results for geochemistry and cosmochemistry were discussed.

      Abstract: Field Emission SEM (FESEM) textural observations, crystal size distribution (CSD) analyses, UV-excited luminescence imaging, and photoluminescence (PL) microspectroscopy excited by 488 nm laser were conducted on two texturally contrasting samples of carbonado, a kind of natural polycrystalline diamond from the Central African Republic (CAR). The investigated carbonado samples A and B show extremely different textures: sample A is made up of faceted crystals accompanied by abundant, small rectangular pores, whereas sample B has a granular texture with coarser crystals and scarce, large pores. Diamond crystals smaller than 2–3 µm are enriched in sample A but depleted in sample B. These textural features indicate that sample B diamonds were annealed under thermodynamically stable P–T conditions. The pore characteristics indicate that fluid permeability was higher for sample A than sample B. Photoluminescence (PL) spectra indicate that samples A and B correspond to Group A and B carbonados in the classification of Kagi et al. (1994), respectively, so that sample A reveals emissions from the H3 center without any N–V0 derived emission at 575 nm, whereas sample B shows emissions from the 3H center and the N–V0 defect. In addition, UV-excited luminescence images and photoluminescence spectra for sample B indicate that the rims of diamond crystals within several microns of a pore show luminescence features similar to those of Group AB carbonados (Kagi et al., 1994), indicating that this Group AB material was formed from Group B by irradiation from pore-filling, radioactive-element-bearing materials at a low temperature. The extent of the low-temperature irradiation is considered to depend on fluid permeability, and the Group A material was strongly irradiated due to its permeable texture whereas the Group B material was not significantly irradiated due to its less permeable granular texture. These results indicate that Group B carbonados have retained their original PL spectral features produced under high pressures and temperatures at mantle depths.

  • Interaction of Fe and Fe 3 C with hydrogen and nitrogen at 6–20 GPa: a
           study by in situ X-ray diffraction
    • Authors: K. D. Litasov; A. F. Shatskiy; E. Ohtani
      Pages: 914 - 921
      Abstract: A method of in situ X-ray diffraction at Spring-8 (Japan) was used to analyze simultaneously the hydrogen incorporation into Fe and Fe3C, as well as to measure the relative stability of carbides, nitrides, sulfides, and hydrides of iron at pressures of 6–20 GPa and temperatures up to 1600 K. The following stability sequence of individual iron compounds was established in the studied pressure and temperature interval: FeS > FeN > FeC > FeH > Fe. A change in the unit-cell volume as compared to the known equations of state was used to estimate the hydrogen contents in carbide Fe3C and hydride FeHx. Data on hydride correspond to stoichiometry with x ≈ 1. Unlike iron sulfides and silicides, the solubility of hydrogen in Fe3C seemed to be negligibly low—within measurement error. Extrapolating obtained data to pressures of the Earth’s core indicates that carbon and hydrogen are mutually incpompatible in the iron–nickel core, while nitrogen easily substitutes carbon and may be an important component of the inner core in the light of the recent models assuming the predominance of iron carbide in its composition.

  • Manifestation of nitrogen interstitials in synthetic diamonds obtained
           using a temperature gradient technique (Fe–Ni–C system)
    • Authors: Yu. V. Babich; B. N. Feigelson; A. I. Chepurov
      Pages: 922 - 927
      Abstract: The IR-peak 1450 cm–1 (H1a-center) associated with nitrogen interstitials have been studied in nitrogen-bearing diamonds synthesized at high P-T parameters in the Fe–Ni–C system. FTIR study shows that manifestation of this nitrogen form is restricted to the regions of active transformation of C-defects into A-defects, which confirms the connection of its formation with C => A aggregation process. An examination of the dependence of the 1450 cm–1 peak on the degree of nitrogen aggregation indicates that H1a-centers are not only formed during C/A aggregation but also disappear simultaneously with the end of C => A transformation. Established facts suggest direct involving of nitrogen as interstitials in the C => A aggregation and serve as strong experimental argument in support of the “interstitial” mechanism of nitrogen migration during aggregation in diamonds containing transition metals.
