Destruction of Plagioclase Twins by Stream Transport
Edward D. Pittman
In untransported material from granitic rocks A-twin/C-twin and Untwinned/Twinned ratios vary inversely with grain size. These characteristics persist in transported detritus. Plagioclase twins tend to be destroyed during stream transport as shown by an increase in A-twin/C-twin and Untwinned/Twinned ratios. This is probably the result of breakage along composition and twin planes, and breakage of untwinned plagioclase into smaller grains. Because of these effects coarser grained plagioclase is preferred for provenance studies.
