Chemical mobility of major elements during lixiviation experiments, in magmatic ornamental stones from portugal

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Six Portuguese magmatic ornamental stones were submitted to Soxhlet experiments during 10,000 hours (approximately 416 days) in order to evaluate how the rain water affects the rock behavior as a dimension stone. Macroscopic alterations were observed in the rock fragments and chemical analysis of leaching water solutions revealed how major elements were mobilized from rock-forming minerals allowing to compare weathering susceptibilities between different natural stones.
