EVOLUTION OF ZIRCONS IN SEDIMENTARY AND …

The majority of zircon population (type B) has been formed in the sediments by authigenesis. Another authigenic associate is rutile. The authigenic zircons have irregular, round and ellipsoidal habits. In metamorphic rocks the same grains show a greater tendency of euhedrism, forming drum-like crystals with acute (331) pyramids and short prisms.
