Abstract

The role of SiO4 groups in a thermally annealed zircon has been investigated. The lattice parameters suggest that at 1,343 K recrystallized zircon is in the high temperature structural modification. The observed changes in the IR spectra of annealed zircon can be explained with a two stage process: (i) a relaxation of the tetrahedra as a function of time, indicating that in the metamict zircon there is a further deformation of the tetrahedra with respect to the one related to the high-temperature structural change and (ii) new absorption bands appear and they can be identified as cristobalite. This latter observation helps the modelling of the recrystallization process based upon diffusion rates.
