When comparing the Gibbs Free Energy of Formation for mullite, fayalite and tephroite, the reactions between the iron- and manganese oxides and the silica will have the following values:
Dominant primary manganese minerals include spessartine, tephroite, rhodonite, pyroxmangite, neotocite, bementite, Mn-rich cummingtonite, rhodochrosite and Mn-rich apatite (Pires, 1977, 1983).
Associated minerals are: jacobsite, kutnohorite, barite, tephroite and spessartine.
The braunite ore is relatively rich in veins and vugs containing good specimens of rhodonite, rhodochrosite, tephroite, kutnahorite, pyroxmangite and barite.
Associated minerals are: rhodochrosite, friedelite, hubnerite, sphalerite, stilpnomelane, albite, barite, hausmannite, tephroite, welinite and an unidentified manganese vanadate.
Standards used were almandine (Mg and Fe), apatite (Ca and P), tephroite (Mn), titanite (Ti) and fluorian riebeckite (F).
