Title: Heterogeneous nucleation mechanisms and formation of metastable phase assemblages induced by different crystalline seeds in a rapidly cooled andesitic melt

Abstract: Pt-capsules loaded with a Pt-coil and two crystalline seeds immersed into an andesitic melt were rapidly cooled from 1300 to 1100 °C with a rate of 3 °C/min at atmospheric pressure and air oxygen fugacity. Results show that the Pt-coil does not induce any heterogeneous crystallization process as well as iron diffusion process from the melt into the platinum substrate. In contrast, the presence of crystalline seeds in a solidifying andesitic melt significantly alters the phase assemblage, composition and texture of the new-forming crystals in response to a heterogeneous nucleation mechanism and the formation of metastable phases.
