Petrography suggests that the constituent minerals of V2-01 formed in the following order: first spinel and fassaite enclosed by melilite, then reversely zoned melilite crystals, and spinel and diopside in the Wark-Lovering rim. The spinel enclosed by melilite has 16O-rich compositions (Δ17O ~ −24‰) and an initial value of (26Al/27Al)0 = (5.6 ± 0.2) × 10−5. The fassaite enclosed by melilite crystals shows variable oxygen isotopic compositions (Δ17O ~ −12‰ and −17‰) and plots on an isochron with (26Al/27Al)0 = (5.6 ± 0.2) × 10−5. The oxygen isotopic compositions of reversely zoned melilite showed continuous variations in Δ17O along the inferred direction of crystal growth, suggesting that surrounding nebular gas, during the formation of the reversely zoned melilite, changed from 16O-poor (Δ17O values larger than −10‰) to 16O-rich (Δ17O ~ −25‰). The six reversely zoned melilite crystals show indistinguishable initial 26Al/27Al values with an average (26Al/27Al)0 of (4.7 ± 0.3) × 10−5, which is clearly distinguishable from the value of enclosed spinel and fassaite, indicating a younger formation age than the enclosed spinel and fassaite. The spinel and diopside from the Wark-Lovering rim shows 16O-rich compositions (Δ17O ~ −23‰) with (26Al/27Al)0 = (4.5 ± 0.4) × 10−5. The values of (26Al/27Al)0 are consistent with the formation sequence inferred from petrography. The formation period for the V2-01 CAI is estimated to be 0.18 ± 0.07 Myr from the difference in initial 26Al/27Al values. These data suggest that the oxygen isotopic composition of solar nebular gas surrounding the CAI changed from 16O-rich to 16O-poor and back to 16O-rich at least recorded as one cycle during the first ~0.2 Myr of Solar System formation.
