The primary acid and alkaline treatment resulted in formation of sodium titanite hydrogel that caused the appearance of (Cl),(Na) and,(O) peaks and the ultra-sonic treatment caused appearance of carbon peak.
It contains numerous inclusions of clinozoisite, titanite and quartz, which follow the direction of the main foliation of the rock.
What is also important is that some of the other "black granite" quarries in the Saint George Batholith contain prominent primary titanite, a feature of their mineral assemblages that may serve to exclude them as possible sources for the Titanic headstones (Table 7).
The mafic dykes are porphyritic to aphyric and consist of calcic plagioclase, hornblendic amphibole or clinopyroxene +/- olivine, ilmenite, titanite and a range of secondary minerals.
Albite, biotite, spessartine, muscovite, olivine, titanite, MnS and CaS were used as standards to derive K-factors for the transformation of intensity ratios to concentration ratios following the procedures of Cliff and Lorimer (1975).
In addition, the clay minerals included common mica (biotite and muscovite), occasional garnet group minerals, apatite, and rare titanite, ilmenite, zircon, rutile and iron oxides.
Accessory minerals include biotite, muscovite, zircon, tourmaline, apatite, titanite, detrital calcite and detrital glauconite.
Rare apatite, titanite, alkali amphibole (aegirine), baryte and diopside have also been found in GA [25].
15-1, sampled from natural outcrop close to the Raci potok) could be macroscopically described as a medium to coarse-grained, grey to red granoblastic gneiss with a weak foliation composed of K-feldspar, quartz, albite, apatite, titanite, and hornblende (Ondra and Potmesil, 1965).
