Thermal expansion and magnetostriction in fayalite, Fe2SiO4

, , , , , &
Olivines - in particular the solid-solution between forsterite (Mg2SiO4) and fayalite (Fe2SiO4) - are important rock-forming minerals on Earth, also occurring in meteorites and interstellar dust. Olivines form the major component of Earth's upper mantle and the point at which their structure becomes unstable with respect to denser minerals marks the upper boundary of the transition zone between the upper and lower mantle. The thermal expansion of fayalite (Fe2SiO4) is unusual and not well understood...
