In this study, the authors aimed to show the informative value of the luminescent features of quartz, ubiquitous rockforming
mineral, in the context of solving this problem.

Diopside is also common as a rockforming
component in the gabbros of the ophiolitic basement.
Brantley and Mellott (2000) measured the specific surface area by gas adsorption for a series of particle size fractions of some adequately pure laboratory-ground rockforming minerals.

The argillization of primary rockforming minerals and volcanic glass has been expressed in literature by many stoichiometric equations in the mineral(volcanic glass)-water-(acid) systems (Keller, 1957; Loughnan, 1969 and many others).
Now, can the most promissing discoveries using modern methods, and under the influence of all the recognized order-disorder states of clay minerals, be expected in the investigation of clay pseudomorphs after known rockforming silicates and volcanic glasses.
