CaO-FeO-SiO 2 Fig. 09537 —System CaO-"FeO"-SiO2. ( A ) Calculated liquidus surfaces for CaSiO3 (CS), Ca2SiO4 (C2S), and liquidus boundary between C2S and F2S (Fe2SiO4). Dotted lines represent isotherms under the assumption that Fe2+ is in tetrahedral coordination in the melts. ( B ) Portion of the liquidus surface in the system CaO-"FeO"-SiO2 from Ref. 1. Psw = pseudowollastonite; Wo = wollastonite; Ra = rankinite; Ol = olivine; Trd = tridymite.

Liquidus surfaces in the system were calculated with the model of Ref. 2 to estimate the activity of the CS (CaSiO3) component. The liquidus surface was then calculated from the LeChatelier-Shreder equation with the assumption of structural analogy between CaSiO3 in the crystalline and molten state. Enthalpy of fusion data were from Refs. 3 and 4.
The calculated liquidus diagram closely reproduces the experimentally-produced diagram1 provided that Fe2+ is in octahedral coordination in the melts. Independent spectroscopic evidence from six-fold coordination of ferrous iron in silicate melts can be found in Ref. 5.
