Abstract

In Proterozoic sandstones, shales, and carbonate rocks of the Visingso Group in southern Sweden, detrital Fe-Ti oxides have undergone alteration by dissolution and/or replacement mainly by titanium oxides, hematite (reddish rocks), or pyrite (greenish sandstones, shales, and carbonate rocks). The alteration of ilmenite occurs through several intermediate phases, each successively enriched in titanium and depleted in iron.-from Authors
