A Study on Color Stones of Clay Minerals — Changhua Stone
Changhua Stone is a rock, composed of clay minerals such as dickites and is also a special secondary quartzite formed by gas liquid metasomatic metamorphism. The article emphasizes its study on rock characteristics, mineral composition, and the causes of formation of Changhua Stone, excluding Changhua Chicken-Blood Stone. By observing petrographical characters of Changhua Stone, analyzing its physical and chemical characters, and testing its geochemical compositions with SEM and X-ray diffraction analysis, the results indicate that the mineral compositions of Changuan Stone are relate to the composition of protolith, the compositions and characters of metasomatic metasomatic fluid, and the conditions of metamorphism, especially the stress and the temperature.
