Figure 1 shows the melting points of 2FeO*Si[O.sub.2] (fayalite) and 2MnO-Si[O.sub.2] (tephroite) to be 2223F (1217C) and 2453F (1345C), respectively.
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).
